Plenty of Aston Villa supporters have been giving their thoughts on social media regarding Lee Hendrie’s transfer comments on Ivan Toney.
Toney, 25, was brought in by The Bees after Ollie Watkins left the club to join Dean Smith at Villa last summer.
Toney, on £21,000-a-week in London, is under contract with the club until 2025, however, should Thomas Frank’s side fail to earn promotion to the Premier League, Hendrie feels Toney would be of interest to multiple clubs.
Would you like to sign Toney?
“There’s no way if Brentford don’t go up this season that he’s not getting snapped up by someone because he’s been the best player in the Championship arguably, because of the goals he has scored, and the assists he has been involved in.
“I’d certainly have a look at if I was Villa manager.
“If I had to pick a player, Toney I’d certainly be looking at if Brentford didn’t go up because of his goals this season.
“I feel that he would fit into a well certainly a Villa side if he was available, it’s just obviously what fee they’d have to pay for him.”
Villa fans react
@AVFC_News shared the story on Twitter on Wednesday evening, which, as to be expected, received interaction from both Villa and Brentford supporters.
This is what these Villa fans had to say about a potential deal.
“I have seen him a lot when he was at Peterborough and he was the full package. Quick, good in the air, clinical”
“Adds options. Ollie can play wide left and might be really important if Jack moves to pastures new”
“I wouldn’t be against this.”
“No we need proven quality from Europe now we have big money”
“There’s a surprise. Talk about lazy journalism. Any other Brentford links?”
