Aston Villa confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that youngster Seb Revan has joined National League side Grimsby Town on a season-long loan.
Since then, a number of Villa supporters have been sharing their thoughts on the move on social media.
How many more signings do Villa need this summer?
He’s now set to gain some valuable senior experience in the fifth tier, with Villa revealing they have the option to recall the 18-year-old in January.
Villa have been proactive when it comes to their academy ranks this summer. They’ve brought in Josh Feeney from Fleetwood Town, Ajani Burchall from Bournemouth and Finn Azaz from West Brom, while also handing out scholarships to ten youngsters.
Revan will be hoping to catch the eye of those tracking his development during the upcoming campaign, one of which you’d expect would be loan coach Mile Jedinak.
Villa fans react
Villa posted the news regarding Revan on their official Twitter page. This is what some had to say in reply, with many seeing it as the right decision for the versatile youngster and one labelling it as an ‘excellent chance’ to shine.
“Excellent chance to gain regular playing time & a step up in quality, all the best you’ll shine in that league”
“Finally some movement. Great loan for Seb. Go smash it, quality player”
“That is exactly what I wanted. Perfect business from Villa. Now get some of the other lads like Louie Barry and Chuk out too.“
“Full season playing pro ball against men will do him the world of good hopefully”
“Great our young lads need to get proper league experience”
