Aston Villa: Fans react to Aaron Hickey update

Aston Villa: Fans react to Aaron Hickey update -Aston Villa

Aston Villa are thought to be leading Celtic in the race to sign Bologna left-back Aaron Hickey in January.

The Serie A side will hold a transfer meeting on January 6 to discuss Hickey’s future, according to Tuttosport, via Total Villa.

And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the news on social media.

How many more signings should Gerrard make after signing Coutinho?









Steven Gerrard has been promised a huge winter window kitty by NSWE and is thought to be an admirer of Hickey, who swapped Scotland for Italy in 2020.

Labelled as a player with ‘quality’ by Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic, the 19-year-old has made 31 appearances for the club – 19 of which have come this season.

Villa currently have two options at left-back in Matt Targett and Ashley Young, but it seems as if they are thinking long-term when looking at a move for Hickey, who is thriving in a top European league at just 19 years of age.

“The obvious answer for a reserve LB. Cash and Keslar on the right, Targett and Hickey on the left. Will be interesting to see if SG wants a straight swap out for Targett with more attacking prowess.”
