Ramsey to stay at Villa Park? Villa’s financial fix torpedoes Tottenham transfer plans

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Aston Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey in what could be a headline transfer of the ongoing summer window. The 23-year-old was anticipated to be the big-money departure at Villa Park this off-season owing to financial inconsistencies at Spurs’ Premier League rivals.

Although Aston Villa are now reluctant to sell the academy graduate after balancing their books in the last few days, per Football Insider. The Villans cashed in on the midfield trio of Douglas Luiz, Morgan Sanson, and Tim Iroegbunam before the June 30 deadline for submitting the club’s 2023–24 financial state of affairs.

Ramsey’s renaissance at Villa Park?

Financial twist Halts Tottenham’s Jacob Ramsey transfer.

It is expected that the aforementioned sales balance the books enough for the club to comply with the Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSR).

The North Londoners are pushing to secure Jacob Ramsey’s signatures this summer, despite the financial year rollover. Tottenham reciprocated their interest with a cash-plus bid involving Giovani Lo Celso, which was rejected by Villa. However, his current employers have made a massive u-turn in their position with the 23-year-old, as they are now keen to keep hold of him this summer. The report claims that Unai Emery wants to keep him at Villa Park, which has complicated Spurs’ efforts to bring him in.

There is a belief that Jacob Ramsey can become a key player at Aston Villa, especially with the UEFA Champions League fixtures added to the schedule at Villa Park. Selling the 23-year-old would have been pure profit for Villa, as he comes from their academy, which could have greatly helped their PSR compliance.

However, with Profit and Sustainability Rules now complied with, Villa are more focused on retaining their top talent to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.

We will see if Daniel Levy & Co. continue to push for Ramsey’s services or move on to other alternatives as the transfer window progresses. Either way, it is clear that Tottenham are keen to strengthen and push on after Ange Postecoglou’s promising first season in North London.
