Aston Villa: Fans react to Finley Thorndike signing -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa have signed attacking midfielder Finley Thorndike after he left West Brom in the summer.

Villa announced the signing on their official website and it didn’t take long for the news to filter on to social media, with a number of fans duly giving their thoughts.

Thorndike has trained with Villa during the summer and has done enough to impress academy manager Mark Harrison to award him a contract with the club. The 19-year-old has featured in four Under-23 games in both Premier League 2 and the Papa John’s Trophy.

How would you rate Villa's transfer window?

He becomes the third player to make the move from The Hawthorns to Bodymoor Heath in recent months, following in the footsteps of Tim Iroegbunam and Finn Azaz.

Thorndike can also play on the left wing and is represented by ICM Stellar Sports, the same agency as Ezri Konsa.
