Aston Villa: Fans confused as Wolves emerge as Matija Sarkic admirers

Aston Villa: Fans confused as Wolves emerge as Matija Sarkic admirers - Aston Villa Transfer Rumours

Wolverhampton Wanderers have emerged as an interested club in making a summer move for Aston Villa keeper Matija Sarkic.

Having developed as a young goalkeeper with Belgian side Anderlecht, Sarkic, who was born in Grimsby, made a move to Villa Park in the summer of September 2015.

Arriving in the Midlands, the youngster spent time representing Villa’s youth sides, before four separate loan spells away from the club.

Having been recalled from his most recent loan spell with Scottish Premiership side Livingston in January, it did look as though Sarkic’s chances of gaining some first team action were improving at Villa, especially with Tom Heaton being ruled out injured.

However, minimal chances in the Midlands have now seen the 22-year-old reject a new deal with his contract set to expire.

League One side Sunderland (The Sun, 24 May, page 59) have previously shown interest, but the Express and Star’s latest claim now has Premier League side Wolves linked with interest.

Reacting to the news of a potential move for Sarkic to Wolves, Villa fans shared their opinion on the matter. Quite a few were left confused, suggesting that he would also struggle to get chances at Molineux and they may have a point, given Rui Patricio and John Ruddy would both probably be ahead of him in the pecking order.
