Revealed: 86% of Aston Villa fans want to replace Nyland with Tom Heaton

According to our recent poll, 86 per cent of Aston Villa fans want new boss Dean Smith to make a move for Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton in January.

The Villans got off to a good start under their new manager this weekend with a 1-0 win over Swansea, but they still conceded 20 goals in their first 13 matches despite the clean sheet on Saturday.

Former boss Steve Bruce brought in two new goalkeepers over the summer, with Andre Moreira arriving on loan from Atletico Madrid and Orjan Nyland, who has started all but two Championship games so far, joining from German side FC Ingolstadt.

Nyland has yet to properly impress though and Villa fans were clearly hoping that Smith would improve his options in January.

In a recent interview with The Mirror, Heaton claimed that he may have to leave Burnley in January to find first-team football thanks to the performances of Joe Hart and previously Nick Pope whilst he has been out with shoulder and calf injuries. The 32-year-old is clearly looking to regain his England place, and Villa could be the perfect move for all parties. Check out the full results of our poll below.
