Aston Villa fans want Lovre Kalinic to be among those who leave this summer

Aston Villa announced the signing of goalkeeper Tom Heaton on Thursday morning, an addition that was their 12th of the summer in what has been an extremely busy window for the Villans.

Heaton has signed for a reported £8m and will add a wealth of experience to their goalkeeping department at the age of 33.

However, in the build-up to the deal being completed, Villa fans were discussing which goalkeeper should leave as a result with the consensus being that Lovre Kalinic was the man who should head elsewhere.

Two fans claimed that he was worth the most and should be shipped out as one stated that because he was Croatia’s national ‘keeper, he wouldn’t want to be a back-up.

A further supporter claimed Kalinic was still good but as a result of the Burnley man joining, he should be loaned out. Another individual hinted that the Croat should be the one to go as he hadn’t worked out.

The 29-year-old spent a period out through injury last term and as a result, only played seven times in the Championship.

Jed Steer’s form towards the back end of last season, coupled with the fact Heaton has arrived means he could well be third choice under Dean Smith.

Here’s the best of the debate.
