Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to a transfer report claiming they are set to hijack Fulham’s bid to sign Nottingham Forest defender Matty Cash.
Arguably one of the most consistent performers in the Championship last season, Cash made himself a first team regular and key squad member for Forest under French boss Sabri Lamouchi.
Making a total of 42 appearances in the league last term, the 23-year-old’s impressive performances have gained plenty of interest with West Ham United being the team most often linked with the defender.
Cash, who helped Forest to 14 clean sheets through the 2019/2020 season, also managed to net three goals and gain five assists, playing at right back.
Villa narrowly survived relegation in the last season, and it is now claimed that they are ready to hijack a bid from Fulham for the defender.
Reacting to the report which was shared by Twitter account @villareport, fans gave their opinion on a potential move for the full-back. A couple suggested it would be karma if they did pip the Cottagers, referring to the fact that Fulham stole in at the last minute to hijack the Villans’ deal for left-back Joe Bryan in 2018.
All I’m seeing today are reports about reports, about players previously linked to us by reports about reports, actually being closer to moving to one of our relegation rivals, according to my reports.
Oh yeah, and more grizzles about poor old Grealish, which are not reports.

Would be karma for the Joe Bryan poach if Villa did sneak it #AVFC

No one knows who were after….so it’s pointless tweeting about targets

Are all these reports going to be ‘We missed out said player who was linked like once’, or ‘We could hijack deal for player we have been linked who is going elsewhere’?

I’d suggest that karma has already come around in regard to that transfer what with Bryan getting relegated with Fulham while Villa came up and stayed up.
