Aston Villa announced on Friday afternoon that Louie Barry has joined Ipswich Town on a season-long loan, and a number of Villa fans were quick to react to the news on social media.
Where will Villa finish this season?
The 18-year-old actually scored on his first-team debut at Villa Park against Liverpool in the FA Cup and will now be given the chance to gain regular senior football at Portman Road.
Barry was included on Ipswich’s bench just 24 hours after a deal went through, but the forward didn’t get on for The Tractor Boys in their 2-2 draw with Morecambe on the opening weekend of League One.
Villa fans react
Villa shared the news regarding Barry on their official Twitter page on Friday. Here is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply, with one labelling a temporary move as ‘brilliant’.
“Wow. Get excited! And send him back safe after you have won the league 🙂“
“A season playing senior football is exactly the right thing for the lad. Hopefully he will fill out a bit similar to when Jack went to Notts County. Good luck Louie”
“Brilliant for you, Good luck mate!”
“Gonna light it up, I think. Very good loan move for him.”
“Love this – step one of mission ‘new starboy’”
“It’s official! Good luck Louie, a really exciting move – this is now the top one to watch for me. Let’s add him to the list”
