According to Aston Villa owner Tony Xia himself, the club recently rejected a €25 million bid for Jordan Amavi.

As reported by HITC:

“Reports in France on Tuesday stated that Marseille are looking to sign the left-back as part of new owner Frank McCourt’s recruitment drive, with La Provence claiming sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta is in talks with the player’s representatives over a potential move.

Liverpool and Everton have also been linked with a move for the 22-year-old, who has made 17 appearances for Villa in the Championship this season after recovering from a serious knee injury sustained on international duty in November 2015 that ruled him out for the rest of the season.

But responding on Twitter to the reported €10m (£8.5m) bid from Marseille, Xia was adamant Amavi will not be leaving Villa Park.

“Don’t bother reading this,” he wrote. “I can tell we have rejected an offer of £25m for @JordanAmavi. He will grow bigger at @AVFCOfficial!”

Villa paid around £9m to sign Amavi from Nice last summer and his current deal expires in 2020.”
