Aston Villa fans on Twitter desperate to avoid Hayden swoop

Aston Villa are in the hunt for the playoffs this season. Yesterday they were given the news that Tammy Abraham had opted to stay at the club despite a loan offer from Wolves, and with a few more signings they could be in business. However, the fans are desperate to avoid signing Isaac Hayden from Newcastle, who The Mirror have linked them with.

Dean Smith isn’t trying to hide the fact he’s recruiting players to make his side better at the back. Lovre Kalinic and Kourtney Hause have already joined the club this window, and with Isaac Hayden they’d have another defensive minded player to help them stop shipping so many goals. This season has seen the Villains score 49 goals, yet they’ve also conceded 40, the joint 7th most of any club in the league.

The Villains, though, can’t see Hayden helping their cause, and would rather see him go to promotion rivals West Bromwich Albion, who are also linked with a move for the midfielder. Hayden has been angling for a move away from St James Park since the summer for personal reasons, and it looks like he’ll be getting his wish this January, even if the Villains are desperate to avoid signing the ex-Arsenal man.

You can read the Villa fans’ calls to avoid Hayden here:

The Villains have made it clear that Hayden is not the man for them, although they’ll have no choice but to get behind him if Dean Smith decides he’s what they need.
