Fleetwood Town confirmed on Tuesday evening that Aston Villa have signed defender Josh Feeney.
And a number of Villa supporters were quick to give their thoughts to the news on social media.
The 16-year-old has made the move to the Midlands in a deal that Fleetwood described as a substantial undisclosed fee.
Villa seemed to have pipped Manchester United to a move for the centre-back, with the Red Devils also linked with the player last month.
Feeney visited Bodymoor Heath in June and were impressed following talks with academy manager Mark Harrison and a deal has now been confirmed by The Cod Army.
Where will Villa finish this season?

Fleetwood’s Twitter post on Tuesday evening got the attention of these Villa supporters, with one describing the deal as ‘class’.
“we really aren’t messing around as far as the academy is concerned are we”
“you love to see it”
“We have a ridiculously stacked youth setup. This club is seriously going places.”
“Premier League champions within 5 years”
“Another very highly rated young player joins Aston Villa. Massively admire the approach the club has taken by prioritising youth. Some of these players are going to be big names and will have us well set for the next decade. Villa are a club that’s going places.”
