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.
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.
villa has really messed around our players and especially the youth players,#calohare #Andregreen definitely worth a spot in the team, we are 19th in league. Sarkic has been amazing goal keeper for years and still not a place. Chester is one of the top defenders and he’s going.

I like Sarkic but he’s our fourth choice. He won’t get anywhere near Wolves team either. Odd move for him if it’s true.

At least go to a championship or league 1 club, I honestly don’t get why he’s moving to a better pl team if he wants more game tike
