Jack Grealish will not leave Aston Villa in January, insists head coach Dean Smith.
Despite Villa sitting just one point above the Premier League relegation zone, the 24-year-old midfielder has impressed this season.
Grealish has scored eight goals and created six more in 21 games, putting him top of Villa's goal-scoring and assist charts.
Grealish has been a Tottenham target in the past, while he is reported to be interesting Manchester United, but Smith says there is no way he will leave in January.
"I think he's a big target for many teams and you can see why," he said. "He's a top player but as I've said before, our owners are very ambitious and want to establish us as a top Premier League club.
"To do that you have to keep your best players, so we'll be keeping hold of Jack Grealish. People can keep looking but they can't touch."
