Many Aston Villa fans have flocked to a tweet from Villa news Twitter account @villareport which has shared the news that Conor Hourihane is set to join Championship side Swansea City on loan for the rest of the 2020/21 campaign.
This news mightn’t come as a massive surprise, as the Republic of Ireland international didn’t play a very significant role for the Villans this term, making just five appearances for the Midlands-based club in all competitions.
It’s been reported that the 29-year-old was still part of Dean Smith’s plans at Villa Park but the player’s departure comes as a result of his desire to get more game time.
So, how have these Aston Villa fans been reacting to this news?
A lot of the Villa supporters who replied to @villareport’s tweet were crushed by this news, indicating that they don’t want to see the last of the £5.4m-rated man at Villa Park.
“This one hurts”
Always gives 100% and is always a threat with that left peg.”
“This makes me quite sad.”
“So sad but he needs games. Hope he does well.”
“This is what heartbreak feels like”
