Leeds fans want to use Villa turmoil to grab Kodjia

Leeds fans are eyeing up moves for Aston Villa players, after news broke that the Villans could be forced into administration.

According to BBC Sport reporter Richard Conway, “administration may be inevitable” at Villa Park, and Leeds fans are wasting no time eyeing up some bargain summer deals.

If Villa do survive, it will likely be from selling all their best and most valuable players, and Leeds certainly won’t be the only Championship club sniffing around for a bargain.

That said, fans are all agreeing a move for Jonathan Kodjia would be wise, as Paul Heckingbottom’s biggest problem was undoubtedly the lack of a proper goalscorer.

The ex-Barnsley man was of course sacked last week, and fans are hoping Kodjia can recapture his incredible goalscoring knack under new management at Elland Road.

While there are a few shouts for the likes of Jack Grealish and James Chester, Kodjia, who scored 19 league goals two seasons in a row before his 2017-18 was destroyed by injuries, is definitely the pick of the bunch.
