Aston Villa: Fans react to Cakir links - Aston Villa

Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir.

And, as to be expected, the latest transfer rumour has had a number of Villa supporters talking online.

According to Turkish media outlet Fotospor, relayed by Birmingham Live, the 25-year-old is attracting interest from Villa and a number of other sides across Europe.

Who has been your Villa player of the season?









Cakir, valued at £14.4m by Transfermarkt, has been a regular for Trabzonspor this season, captaining the Super Lig side on multiple occasions.

He’s kept 26 clean sheets in 111 appearances for Trabzonspor, with the latest report suggesting that £17m could be enough to land the Turkey international this summer.

Emiliano Martinez hasn’t missed a minute of Premier League action in his first season as a Villa player, with Dean Smith also having Tom Heaton and Jed Steer as back up.
