Aston Villa fans react as club nears Nyland capture

Aston Villa are said to be on the verge of completing a deal for FC Ingolstadt 04 goalkeeper Orjan Nyland – as reported by the Daily Star.

The 27-year-old has been with Ingolstadt since 2015, and stayed with the German club despite their relegation from the top tier at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Villa, however, are believed to be nearing a move for the Norway international.

The Championship outfit have already secured the loan signing of Andre Moreira from Atletico Madrid, and the 23-year-old could now have a strong rival for the number one position during the new campaign.

Villa have been searching for a new first-choice stopper since Sam Johnstone left at the end of last season following a successful loan spell.

Jed Steer had been tipped by the Villa fans to take the position, but Nyland is now seemingly close to securing a move to Villa Park.
