Aston Villa fans are not happy with links to Sam Gallagher

Aston Villa are interested in signing Southampton striker Sam Gallagher on loan according to The Birmingham Mail.

The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Villa rivals Birmingham City where his return of six goals made him the club’s top scorer in the league.

With the Villans undergoing financial uncertainty, it appears Steve Bruce will have to rely on free transfers and loans to get by next season and Gallagher is apparently on the boss’s wishlist.

The forward has spent the past three seasons on loan in the Championship, first with Milton Keynes Dons, then with Blackburn Rovers before he was sent out to Birmingham, with his most prolific campaign at Ewood Park where he scored 11 goals.
