Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to the latest transfer update about loanee Ross Barkley, who would be keen to stay at the club.
According to journalist Ashley Preece and tweeted out by @villareport, Barkley is believed to be keen to make his loan deal a permanent move as after his close friend Jack Grealish committed his long-term future to Aston Villa
Before picking up his injury in the match against Brighton, Barkley played five times in the Premier League, scoring two goals and getting one assist. Villa have definitely lost a huge threat and they’ll be hoping that the England international is back very soon as he has averaged 3.4 shots, three key passes and 2.2 successful dribbles per game (WhoScored).
He also helps captain Grealish massively. With Barkley out of the side, Grealish has been the main attacking threat and has a lot of the weight on his shoulders and he’s been given more attention from the opposition.
Aston Villa fans react to the news on Barkley:
“Agent Grealish making moves.They are two peas in a pod. Would love Barkley to stay.”
“Yes get in, I hope you are right again mate, utv”
“I think this signing needs to be a priority. Hourihane, although a good servant to Villa over the years, doesn’t have much more time at Villa so we need to strengthen this position.”
“May as well give us the league titles for the next five years now and save the hassle”
“We’ve done it mate”
“Oh my god”
