Aston Villa: Fans react to news that Wesley and Tom Heaton will not feature against in 19/20 season - Aston Villa

Birmingham Mail journalist Ashley Preece has confirmed that Aston Villa duo Wesley and Tom Heaton will play no further part in the 2019/20 campaign.

The duo suffered long-term knee injuries in January, with the Telegraph suggesting at the time that they would both miss the rest of the season.

However, since then the Premier League has been suspended indefinitely due to a pandemic sweeping the world (Sky Sports) which means that, if it does re-start, the campaign will likely now run into the summer.

Some Villa fans may have hoped that would mean Wesley and Heaton could make a return to action as they may have recovered by then. However, those hopes have now been dashed with Preece confirming in his article that Dean Smith withdrew both players from their 25-man Premier League squad list at the start of February.

A Premier League official has now announced (via Birmingham Mail) that those lists will still apply when things do resume, meaning that the duo cannot play as they are not registered.

Loads of Villa fans have been responding to this update, with many suggesting that it is ridiculous and that the rule should be changed. Here is what some had to say…
