Jonathan Kodjia is one of a number of Aston Villa players to be linked with a move away from the club in this summer’s transfer window.
The 28-year-old, who is valued at £8.10m by Transfermarkt, only managed one goal in 15 Championship appearances for Villa last term.
The powerful striker missed a lot of football through injury, however, and did manage 19 Championship goals during his first season at Villa.
Leeds United and Newcastle United are both believed to be interested in signing Kodjia this summer, and the Villa fans have been reacting to the speculation on social media.

There are some Villa fans who would be prepared to sell Kodjia ahead of the 2018-19 Championship season, but that is not an opinion shared by all.
It will be very interesting to see whether Villa can afford to keep the Frenchman this summer due to their financial woes.
A selection of the Twitter reaction to the speculation can be seen below:
If Newcastle can afford to loan out Mitrovic they definitely don’t need Kodjia
