Aston Villa: Fans react as West Brom emerge to test Fenerbahce’s interest in striker - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to a transfer report linking Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion with a move for striker Mbwana Samatta.

Villa boss Dean Smith has been working hard behind the scenes to improve his attacking options this summer, sealing a deal for former Brentford man Ollie Watkins, who netted an impressive 26 goals in the Championship last term

Smith’s desire to improve his options came after seeing the likes of Keinan Davis, Wesley and Samatta all struggle to find the back of the net on a consistent basis last season.

And, the future of the latter has now been thrown into the spotlight, despite only arriving in January for £9.45m.

Linked with a potential move to Turkish club Fenerbahce, Samatta could leave England after scoring just one Premier League goal.

However, according to journalist Alan Nixon, West Brom could make a last ditch attempt to sign the striker before the transfer window closes.

That claim has prompted a number of Villa fans to react, sharing their opinions via Twitter account @villareport. It seems that many do not want him to go, perhaps because he hasn’t yet had much of a chance following his January arrival plus the fact that Albion are one of the Villans’ fiercest rivals.

Here is what some had to say…

Do you think Samatta would make a good signing for West Brom or should Villa keep him? Let us know in the comments section below…
