Aston Villa and Tom Heaton is the transfer rumour that just won’t go away this summer.
The ongoing saga with the Burnley shot-stopper has left some Villa fans fuming.
Football Insider reported last week that Villa had a bid of £4m for the England international rejected with Sean Dyche’s side looking for triple that to seal the 33-year-old’s signature. It is thought that Burnley want £10m for Heaton, per Alan Nixon.
BURNLEY. Keeping an eye on Peacock-Farrell at LEEDS in case lose one or two keepers. Still want around 10m from VILLA for Heaton who could yet sign a deal to stay.

A number of fans took to Twitter to share their anger after the latest update regarding the experienced Premier League keeper with one member of the fanbase bluntly asking the club to move on from him.
Burnley were labelled greedy by one Villa supporter with many others begging the club to just pay what’s required for the much younger Jack Butland – who the Express & Star claimed the club would bid £20m.
You can read the thoughts from a selection of Villa fans below:
Ridiculous. Just move on from him

He’s a good player but they’re being greedy only 1 year on his contract. Wait to January get him for £2m

10mil should buy someone for the long term, not 2-3 years

Villa don’t need a new keeper yet- if Villa can’t get Butland, bide time and get a top quality keeper- next summer if necessary!

Pay the extra £10m and get Butland, Keeper for the next 10 years sorted.
