Conor Hourihane has recently addressed his Aston Villa future, and a number of Villa fans have been sharing their thoughts on the midfielder on social media.
The 30-year-old spent the second half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Swansea City, helping them to the playoff final.
“Probably so, there’s no getting away from that.
“Then we’ll see what happens with the future after these games. I will be heading back to Villa for pre-season and see where we go from there.”

Villa fans react
This is what they had to say in reply, with one describing the midfielder as ‘fantastic’…
“Sorry no. He’s been a great player for the club, but he’s just not the quality we need now to progress.”
“No. He isn’t going to get much/any prem game time. He won’t be happy. He has been great for us but best for him to move on”
“Did an absolutely fantastic job for the club and we should be eternally grateful but sadly he isn’t good enough for where we hope to be in the future.”
“I’ve got a lot of time for Conor, he’s done great for us, but we need to step up now.”
“Hourihane has been quality for us and he played a massive part in getting us to where we are now. Think it’s best for both to move on now though. I will be forever grateful”
“Time to move on! Great player who helped us get to this position, but let’s remember him for his good times!”
