With that in mind, it seems likely that one of their goalkeepers already at the club could leave. That appears to be the case with Lovre Kalinic who The Sunday People (21/07, page 54) claim could depart for as less as £3m.
The Croatian was signed in January but after being troubled with an injury, found himself dislodged by Jed Steer who went onto play a key part for the remainder of the season, saving a penalty in the play-offs against West Brom.
However, despite his heroics and the lack of football Kalinic played, it appears as though supporters want to see him stay at Villa Park.
One fan claimed he played well against Minnesota, urging for him to be given another chance. Other supporters held similar sentiments, suggesting he should be made to fight for his place.
A further individual went as far as saying they had more confidence in the 29-year-old than they did in Steer.
Here’s the best of the reacton.
he looked so much better against minessota, give him a chance

Keep him for that price, make him fight for his place

Don’t see why we dont give him a proper chance to play
