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.
