The Daily Star has reported that Aston Villa are keen on re-signing West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass, and Villa fans on Twitter have been getting excited by the rumour.
Snodgrass spent last season on loan at Villa Park and, despite coming on at half-time in the Hammers’ opening game against Liverpool, the Daily Star reports that the Scottish international may be allowed to leave the London Stadium following the signing of winger Andriy Yarmolenko over the summer.
The 30-year-old played 43 times in the Championship and playoffs last season for Steve Bruce’s side, scoring eight goals and providing an impressive 13 assists as Villa lost to Fulham in the playoff final, missing out on promotion to the Premier League at the final hurdle.
Without the riches of the Prem, Villa faced financial problems and the threat of a winding up order from HMRC over unpaid tax bills. However, with new majority owners now at the helm the club are back to being able to spend and the fans will be hoping a couple of players come in on loan to improve the squad.
Check out some of the best tweets regarding Snodgrass to Villa below.
