Aston Villa: Fans react to Evans’ claim on Ings -Aston Villa

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.

The 29-year-old was announced as a Villa player on Wednesday evening out of nowhere, penning a three-year deal at Villa Park.

How many goals will Ings score this season?







Both Sky Sports and BBC believed a deal cost in the region of £25m, however, Evans, who writes for The Athletic, claimed a move cost Villa £30m.

Ings became Villa’s fourth summer signing after moves for Emiliano Buendia, Ashley Young and Leon Bailey and bolsters Dean Smith’s ranks going forward with Jack Grealish now a Manchester City player.

Villa have made some unusual signings in the past, can you identify some? First up, who is this who Villa landed in 2016?

Villa fans react

Well-known Villa page @villareport shared Evans’ claim on Ings on Twitter on Wednesday evening.

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”
