Aston Villa fans react to failed Woodburn deal

Aston Villa were believed to be interested in signing Liverpool youngster Ben Woodburn on loan for the 2018-19 campaign.

The 18-year-old is a super talent, and it is not a surprise that a number of clubs are being credited with an interest in the Wales international.

Villa were said to be in a strong position to secure a loan deal, but according to The Times, Woodburn is actually joining Sheffield United on loan.

The news has come as somewhat of a surprise to many, with Villa rightly regarded as the bigger club at that level of football.

However, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder appears to have worked his magic, and Woodburn, who has been involved for Liverpool during pre-season, will seemingly soon arrive at Bramall Lane.

The Villa fans have been offering their views on the news on social media, and a selection of the best Twitter reaction can be seen below:
