Aston Villa: Fans react to Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek loan links - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has been linked with loan moves for Chelsea midfielders Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek as he plans to find a new ‘number 8’.

The 2019/2020 season offered Villa fans a rather bumpy ride as the Midlands outfit fought off relegation with a final day draw against West Ham United.

Smith has looked to change things this time around and an opening day win over Sheffield United has kick-started their season so far.

Matched with that impressive three points, Villa have also signed a number of new additions, including Ollie Watkins from Brentford, Matty Cash from Nottingham Forest, Emiliano Martinez from Arsenal and most recently Bertrand Traore from French side Lyon.

With the transfer window open until mid-October, reports are further emerging with claims Smith wants to add another new face to his side.

John Percy from The Telegraph claims Smith wants to find a new number 8 and that a potential loan deal for either Barkley or Loftus-Cheek has been mentioned.

Reacting to the transfer report, Villa fans took to Twitter account @villareport to give an opinion on a potential move for the England international duo. It seems that fans would be happy with either, indeed both have great pedigree. Barkley has won the FA Cup and Europa League whilst having 33 England caps to his name, whilst Loftus-Cheek has made 10 appearances for the Three Lions and has won two Premier League titles.

Do you think Loftus-Cheek would be a good summer signing for Villa? Let us know in the comments section below…
