Aston Villa: Fans slam Hendrie’s transfer suggestion

Aston Villa: Fans slam Hendrie’s transfer suggestion - Aston Villa

Plenty of Aston Villa supporters have been reacting on social media to Lee Hendrie’s Villa summer transfer suggestions.

Dean Smith has brought in five permanent additions to his squad this season, totalling £88.34m in transfer fees.

Ross Barkley also arrived on loan, and it seems as if the club will be active in the market once again at the end of the current campaign.

Hendrie’s Fulham trio

Talking to Football FanCast, former Villa midfielder Hendrie was asked who Villa should be looking to sign in the summer.

The 43-year-old picked out Fulham trio Harrison Reed, Ademola Lookman and Bobby Decordova-Reid as possible options, should Scott Parker’s side suffer relegation, with the latter of the three seemingly top of his wishlist.

“If Fulham do go down, I just feel that there’s possibly a couple of players I would certainly look at in that team that would certainly stand out for me. [Harrison] Reed in the midfield, [Ademola] Lookman and Bobby Decordova-Reid, he’s one again that I’d certainly have, and he would play week in, week out.”

Will Grealish stay at Villa this summer?
