“Jack (Grealish) wanted to be certain that if at any point a Champions League club came in for him and Aston Villa was not in that competition, that we would not stand in his way”, Purslow said in a video on Villa’s official Twitter account.

“For that reason, we agreed to incorporate a so-called release clause into his contract.

“Our board set this clause at a value of £100million, knowing that would be, by some way, a record price for a British footballer and also a record fee for any player bought by a Premier League club.”
