Todd Cantwell: Aston Villa expected to pursue Norwich midfielder if Jack Grealish transfer is finalised

Aston Villa are expected to pursue their interest in Norwich midfielder Todd Cantwell, should Jack Grealish's transfer to Manchester City be finalised.

There has yet to be official contact made between Villa and last season's Championship winners, but Norwich are aware of the interest.

With less than two weeks to go until the start of the Premier League season, Norwich do not want to lose Cantwell and it would take a significant bid for them to consider letting him go.

Norwich have a good relationship with Villa after they negotiated the sale of Emiliano Buendia in June.
