Aston Villa manager Dean Smith will not pursue a deal for Liverpool midfielder Curtis Jones this window as he is ‘happy with the squad he has’, as relayed by Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett on Twitter.
Becoming an influential part of Jurgen Klopp’s side last term, the 20-year-old managed to register nine goal contributions from 34 appearances, with four goals and five assists to his name [Transfermarkt].
Despite being linked with the Villains in recent days, it seems that Jones will not be pitching up in the Midlands this summer after recent claims made by Dorsett on social media.
Should Smith have made a move for Curtis Jones?
Speaking to his large following on Twitter, the journalist signified that Villa will not be pursuing the prodigious 20-year-old, claiming that Smith is happy with the resources he currently has at his disposal.
In light of this news, plenty of Aston Villa diehards took to Twitter to share their opinions on the club’s unwillingness to pursue a deal for the Liverpool ace.
Aston Villa fans react
Replying to multiple outlets on Twitter, here is what some Villa fans had to say about the update, with many venting their fury at Smith over his stance on the squad. Indeed, one irate supporter dubbed it a “joke”:
“So we have cash for a player in a position where we desperately need reinforcements but won’t actively pursue a deal. Absolute circus.”
“Very surprising if he is happy with what we have. So clear we need some steel in the middle. Also we have started 2/3 games with 36 y/o Young and El Ghazi as wingers. I’d doubt there is a team in the Prem that would start a game with worse wingers all season.”
