Aston Villa confirmed the signing of Southampton striker Danny Ings on Wednesday evening.
And, with no rumours of a transfer beforehand, the confirmation led to a number of Villa supporters going wild on social media.
How many goals will Ings score this season?
The 29-year-old turned down a new Saints contract earlier in the summer, which would have made him the club’s best-paid player, but he is now a Villa man after an under-the-radar deal went through on Wednesday.
Villa fans react
The club shared the news regarding Ings on their official Twitter page. This is what some Villa fans had to say in reply…
“Nah it’s actually so scary for the rest of the league. It’s happening”
“I may be in the minority… but not a fan of this signing. So Watkins wide or we play 352? 30 mil for a 30 year old with injuries who’s had one good season? We are panic buying.”
“Excuse us? I mean, this is GREAT. Lange quietly working his magic again?”
“LANGEEEEEEEEE AT THE BACK POST!”
“Love you Villa”
