In what is so far the most expensive transfer of the window, Manchester City have officially announced the signing of Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish in a deal believed to be worth £100 million (R2 billion).
The Premier League champions have signed the 25-year-old for a club-record fee, with the England international becoming the most expensive signing of Pep Guardiola's career.
Grealish has signed a five-year deal with the Citizens after reportedly snubbing a new contract offer at boyhood club Villa, for whom he made 213 appearances since his senior debut in 2013.
The midfielder has, for a long time, been considered a top talent, but has managed to take his game to new heights over the past two seasons, for which he was rewarded with a place in England's 2020 UEFA European Championship squad.
With his move, Grealish is officially the most expensive signing of this transfer window, with Jadon Sancho's move to Manchester United moving down to second.
