Aston Villa: Fans react to Heaton update

Aston Villa: Fans react to Heaton update - Aston Villa

Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton is considering leaving the club in the summer in search of regular game time.

That’s according to the reliable Gregg Evans from The Athletic, with his claims grabbing the attention of numerous Villa supporters online.

Heaton has made just 20 appearances for the club since joining from Burnley in 2019, with Emiliano Martinez establishing himself as Dean Smith’s number one.

The Englishman actually suffered a serious knee injury against his former side last year and hasn’t featured for the club since.

Heaton has been on the bench since December, but even though Villa will offer him an extension, it seems as if he’ll consider a permanent exit in the summer. His current deal, worth £42,000-a-week, still has two years left to run.
