Aston Villa fans react to surprising transfer report

According to The Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa would have moved for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, West Ham United striker Javier Hernandez and Denmark’s Thomas Delaney if they had earned promotion to the Premier League last term.


Villa reached the final of last season’s Championship playoffs, but missed out on the chance to return to the top flight as they lost to Fulham.

Steve Round recently lost his job as Villa’s technical director, but it has been claimed that the former Manchester United coach had huge plans for the club this summer.

Indeed, according to The Birmingham Mail, Fellaini, Hernandez and Delaney – who joined Borussia Dortmund from Werder Bremen earlier this summer – would have all been targets for Villa if they were promoted to the Premier League.

Fellaini ultimately signed a new contract at United, but Hernandez’s future with West Ham is still far from secure.
