Aston Villa: Fans react to Hendrie’s Toney comments

Aston Villa: Fans react to Hendrie’s Toney comments - Aston Villa

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.

Both forwards have had brilliant first seasons with their respective clubs, with Toney scoring 28 Championship goals in 38 games following his £5m move from Peterborough.

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.

Talking to Football League World, cited by Birmingham Live, Hendrie urged Villa to move for the forward, should Brentford remain in the second-tier.

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.”
