Aston Villa fans hate the idea of signing Craig Dawson

With automatic promotion to the English Premier League now a remote possibility, Aston Villa’s transfer plans heading into the summer are uncertain given they face the lottery that is the Championship play-offs.

Nonetheless they continue to be linked with moves for players, one of which was reported to be Craig Dawson this week.

The West Bromwich Albion stopper has been a regular in the top-flight this season, although the Baggies are obviously struggling with a relegation battle.

Fans never like being linked with players from rival teams, but Aston Villa fans appear to be especially not keen on signing the Baggies defender, believing he is below the quality required, with some suggesting James Chester is already a better player.

In or out of the Premier League, Steve Bruce is likely to be busy in the transfer market this summer, but is his reported quest to sign Dawson misguided?
