Aston Villa fans debate Alex McCarthy transfer report

Per a report from Sky Sports, Southampton have put both Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy up for sale with Aston Villa said to be in the running for the latter as they continue their raid of the Saints.

The Villans have already managed to secure the services of Matt Targett during the transfer window whilst The Daily Mirror (July 2, page 49) claim they’re also interested in Jack Stephens.

Villa fans weren’t too enamoured by the idea of signing him and they hold similar sentiments over McCarthy.

Taking to Twitter they appeared to be strongly against seeing him arrive.

One supporter claimed the Midlands outfit would be better off with Jed Steer whilst another labelled the Southampton stopper as dodgy. A further fan said they could do better.

Other reaction was focused around previous targets Jack Butland and Tom Heaton, who one individual said would be better options.

McCarthy, who is rated at £4.5m per Transfermarkt, made 25 appearances in the Premier League last term but kept a measly four clean sheets.

In the process, he conceded 44 goals in what was a poor season statistically for the 29-year-old.

Here’s the best of the debate.
