And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been giving their thoughts to the news on social media.
What should Villa do with Kesler Hayden?
Look for a Championship loan!
Keep him as back up to Cash!
Kesler Hayden scored the goal against Walsall to take Swindon into the third round and impressed against the Premier League champions, and it seems as if Steven Gerrard liked what he saw from the defender on Friday night.
It remains to be seen what the 41-year-old has in mind for the teenager, with Matty Cash the only recognised senior right-back available to the Villa manager.
Villa fans react
Villa shared the news regarding Kesler Hayden on their official Twitter channel. Here is what these supporters had to say in reply, with one labelling the update as ‘big news’ and another ‘buzzing’ to see him back at his parent club.
“Well this is a shock. Either we’re loaning him out to a team in a higher league or maybe Matty Cash has Covid or is injured and he’s come back to cover for him. From what we’ve seen though, this kid is perfect for the way we play”
“This is pretty big news. Swindon fans will be gutted.”
“Buzzing for this, was incredible against City, a bit of competition is no bad thing for Cash.”
