Aston Villa paid Southampton £30m for striker Danny Ings, according to reliable reporter Gregg Evans.
And a number of Villa supporters have been sharing their negative thoughts at the figure on social media.
How many goals will Ings score this season?
Villa fans react
This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply to the post, with one describing a fee as ’embarrassing’ with a number of fans not exactly thrilled at the fee.
“i’m baffled but fair play”
“That’s awful business”
“Embarrassing fee for a back up striker. Unless Ollie is being pushed out left !! Spending the Grealish money wisely for a 29-year-old injury prone second striker”
“I don’t like this at all.”
“Wow. 30 mil for a 29-year-old. No wonder saints said yes and he was here in a flash.”
“That’s shocking we’ve been robbed that’s way over priced, he had less than a year on his contract and he injury prone”
