Aston Villa have endured a turbulent start to the season, struggling for consistency in the league and suffering a premature exit from the Carabao Cup in midweek.
While Steve Bruce’s side remain amongst promotion chase, the performances of the Villans have not seen last season’s defeated play-off finalists ranked as the favourites to seal a return to the Premier League this term.
Villa are likely to be extremely active in the transfer market as they seek to complete final pieces of business before the European transfer window and loan windows slam shut on Friday, with departures on the cards as well as arrivals.
Andre Green has seen his exit from Villa Park confirmed after sealing a deal to join League One promotion hopefuls Portsmouth on loan for the remainder of the campaign, earning a mixed response from fans on social media.
We have gathered some of the best reactions to Green’s loan exit below.
Bolasie hasn’t proven any fitness yet and Adomah hasn’t set the world alight at all, and we have 40+ games left. He’d definitely get his chance
