However, Villa have since been rescured by the investment from business investors Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.
"At the moment, Spurs haven't got anywhere near what the owners want to even consider, so there's not a discussion to be had", Bruce told a news conference on Friday.
Nyland, who was linked with Villa's city rivals Blues earlier in the summer, would become the club's second keeper signing in a matter of days following the loan capture of Andre Moreira from Atletico Madrid.
This, combined with narrowly-averted financial ruin at Villa, has meant rumours of a move away have been non-stop regarding Villa midfielder Grealish and a potential transfer to a Premier League club. "The one thing the owners have made pretty clear is that no one is for sale", said Bruce.
'We don't want to lose our best players, but they're aware of course that everyone has their price.
His ability to drag Villa up the pitch single-handedly was a hallmark of his stand-out performances for Villa last season and he was easily their best player during their play-off final defeat to Fulham at Wembley in May.
Ex-Spurs ace Crouch insists that it could be a smart move for Grealish to make the step up to the top flight. "So if somebody wants to come and buy one of our players then they are going to have to find a premium and make sure that the owners are comfortable with that".
Terry posted a comment on Instagram while congratulating Villa defender James Chester on his appointment as new Aston Villa club captain.
Bruce said Tottenham would have to pay a premium to get their man before the transfer window closes on August 9.
