Aston Villa confirmed on Thursday evening that defender Kortney Hause has signed a new deal at Villa Park.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa supporters were quick to give their thoughts to the update on social media.
Should Villa sell Hause?
Yes, not needed!
No, keep hold of him!
Hause was set to be out of contract in the summer, however, he has now put pen to paper on a new deal through to 2025.
The 26-year-old has made eight appearances this season and is one of three centre-backs available to Steven Gerrard alongside Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa.
Villa are still keen to bring in another centre-back before the month is out as well as a defensive midfielder, however, it is Hause who is line to start against Everton tomorrow due to Konsa’s injury.
Villa fans react
This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply to the club’s official Twitter post, with one labelling it as ‘great news’ and another hailing Hause as a ‘class act’.
“Gwarn big dog! What a signing”
“Delighted. Great news. One of the best deals of the transfer window.”
“Top man Kortney. Great player and a class act . VTWD”
“An important deal for the club that won’t get headlines. Hause has always been a guy who steps up well when called upon. Glad he’ll be here a while longer.”
“Excellent news for all concerned, every club needs a Kortney House”
