Revealed: 66% of Aston Villa fans don’t want to see Gareth McAuley sign for the club

Aston Villa supporters are not in favour of the club making a move for West Bromwich Albion defender Gareth McAuley, after being linked earlier this week.

The Daily Record reported that Villa were one of the sides from the Championship chasing his signature, also rivalling Steven Gerrard’s Rangers.

The Villans are on the hunt for reinforcements in the centre of defence after the exit of John Terry at the end of last season’s failed attempt to make it into the English Premier League.

With significant experience in the top-flight, McAuley has proven he can play at the top level, but now 38 years old and never really possessing the kind of quality Terry ever had, he’s an unconvincing replacement.

Villa fans certainly don’t want him to sign, with 66% of respondents to a poll we published earlier this week believing the club shouldn’t make a move for him.
