SOCCEROOS captain Mile Jedinak won't be joining Australia teammates Mat Ryan and Aaron Mooy in the Premier League next season after Aston Villa's heartbreaking 1-0 Championship play-off loss to Fulham.

Grealish starred for Villa this season but the 22-year-old is being linked with a switch to the Premier League after Steve Bruce's side were defeated by Fulham in the Championship playoff final. "We are a Premier League team".

That figure rises to £280m if the winners survive just one season in the Premier League, according to BBC Sport.

"That's great news for us as a club and it's fantastic to see him staying on".

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic, who also took Watford into the Premier League, could also find himself a target after taking the Londoners up playing stylish football. "We must adapt ourselves; we know what is ahead of us". "We were unlucky and needed too many chances".

For now, as Jokanovic said when asked about the future of Ryan Sessegnon and retaining on-loan striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, it is all about enjoying what his attacking team have achieved.

"In my eyes, over the past two seasons, we've been the best team in this league". We deserved it. It's not easy to play at Wembley, there is a lot of pressure.

Heat for tweet: Browns' Randall amazed by jersey posting
Randall, who the Browns acquired in a trade with Green Bay in March, is a fan of Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors . Randall's tweet picked up steam fast, going from 30 thousand retweets to well over 100k in mere hours.

I'm not tempting fate or predicting anything because I don't want to jinx the game, so all I'll say is. if we play well then we will be fine. Promotion is vindication for the glorious front-foot manner in which Fulham have flummoxed countless teams this season.

Fred, 25, fits that bill, although he is used to playing a little deeper, while Grealish represents somebody who could grow into a role at Old Trafford in the years to come.

Cairney struck after 23 minutes, clinically slotting the ball home from an inch flawless pass by Ryan Sessegnon at the end of a rare flowing move in a cagey first half.

If someone said on deadline day I would be the leading scorer in the Championship in the rest of the season and we would win promotion, I would not have believed them.

"We were disappointed with the first half", Bruce said.

Liverpool have got their summer off to a flying start by signing Fabinho and Naby Keita, and their fans have been quick to stick the boot into United after the Grealish links emerged.
