Aston Villa fans craving addition of Joe Lolley

Aston Villa supporters have taken to Twitter to suggest their club sign Joe Lolley from Nottingham Forest.

Dean Smith’s men secured victory over Forest at the City Ground last night with Lolley claiming the assist for the goal they conceded. It sparked mass debate from the Villa Park faithful with some now pleading that he arrives during the off-season.

The winger has impressed both times Forest have played Villa this season, picking up five assists across two matches which included supplying four goals in the 5-5 draw the two teams played out when they met in November. It’s something which has clearly played a key part in the Villans’ fans hunger to see him join the club.

It’s not often supporters sing the praises of opposition players but the 26-year-old appears to be an exception, being labelled as fantastic and tidy following the clash this week.

They’ve also been quick to point out the fact that the former Huddersfield man is, in fact, a Villa fan himself meaning he’d likely be willing to join the club if the opportunity presented itself.

Fans are finding plenty of pros for the Redditch-born midfielder and are yearning for his potential signing, whether that be as a replacement for Jack Grealish should he leave, or as someone who can play alongside him.

Lolley has racked up impressive numbers this season, scoring eight and assisting nine in the Championship.

Here’s what’s been said.
