A few Aston Villa fans have given their opinion on a potential summer move for Galatasaray defender Christian Luyindama.
The 26-year-old joined Turkish club Galatasaray last January on loan before completing a permanent move from Standard Liege.
However, following his arrival in the Turkish Super Lig, the DR Congo international has found playing time hard to come by, making just 10 appearances this term in the league.
With interest coming in from Villa for the defender, who can also operate as a defensive midfielder, his future is now up for debate.

Joining Villa with interest in the defender are said to be Premier League rivals Everton with Belgian news outlet Voetbalkrant reporting Carlo Ancelotti’s side have shown interest.
Debating a potential summer move for Luyindama, some Claret and Blue fans questioned the interest ahead of a potential relegation to the Championship.
Will he still be ‘insisting’ if we are relegated.

Surely this will depend on what league were in. Champs League to Championship can’t see that one, but money talks.

Villa currently sit 19th in the Premier League standings and are in desperate need to find a run of form when the 2019/2020 season resumes.
Other Villa fans raised other question marks over a potential deal and those responses are below…
How much is he worth?

Why should he sign a new contract if he doesn’t want to pay for them anymore?
