Jack Grealish is edging closer to joining Manchester City from Aston Villa with the British record £100million deal on track to be completed by the weekend.

The playmaker has returned to training with his Villa colleagues this week at a west London location but Sportsmail understands the transfer is still expected to go through in the coming days, possibly before City face Leicester at Wembley in the Community Shield.

Though Grealish is believed to have held further discussions with Villa chiefs this week, there is growing acceptance at Villa that he will depart, with the club continuing to monitor Tammy Abraham as boss Dean Smith plans for life without the 25-year-old.

Chelsea are willing to sell Abraham – also a target for Arsenal – for about £40m and Villa have kept him on the radar after he scored 26 goals in all competitions while on loan in 2018-19 to help them win promotion via the play-offs.

As well as a pacy forward, Villa are thought to be looking for a versatile attacking midfielder and a holding player, while they retain an interest in Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse.

Villa have already been busy in the market this summer, signing Emiliano Buendia from Norwich for a club-record fee that could rise to about £38m, and Leon Bailey from Bayer Leverkusen for £23m, as well as bringing back Ashley Young 10 years after the former England international left Villa Park to join Manchester United.
