Aston Villa look set to sign West Brom youngster Tim Iroegbunam, after he rejected a lucrative deal to stay at The Hawthorns, according to Express and Star reporter Joseph Masi.
And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans were quick to give their thoughts to the news on social media.
According to Masi, Iroegbunam is heading to Villa after snubbing a contract proposal with the Baggies.
Where will Villa finish this season?
The 18-year-old is primarily a central midfielder but can also play in a defensive midfield role when required. Described as a ‘tough tackler’ who has ‘started to add goals to his game’, Iroegbunam has been on the books at West Brom since Under-8 level.
He now looks set to move across the Midlands to Villa Park, though, and a number of Villa supporters have been sharing their thoughts on the proposed move.
