Aston Villa won’t entertain any late offers for midfielder Douglas Luiz and aren’t expected to make any further additions to Dean Smith’s squad.
That’s according to Matt Maher of The Express and Star, and his update has had a number of Villa fans talking on social media.
How would you rate Villa's transfer window?
It was alright!
Not good at all!
Villa fans react
Maher shared the news on Twitter on Monday afternoon regarding Luiz and Villa’s unlikely deadline day activity.
Here’s what some had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘disappointing’.
“Wow. We are short and it’s clear to see.”
“Smith Out otherwise we’re finishing below 11th with our squad”
“no more incomings – were bottlers”
“Mid table season at best then. Quality CM needed badly to push on. Disappointing.”
“Lack of recruitment in midfield is a joke. The depth of quality is a huge issue. Outside of McGinn and Luiz were suddenly relying on constant form from kids. Not good enough”
