Aston Villa bookies’ favourite to sign Robert Snodgrass

Aston Villa have emerged as the front-runners to sign West Ham United winger Robert Snodgrass.

The Odds are in Villa’s favour, amid reports that the Scotland international’s time at the London Stadium is over before it has really begun.

The Hammers brought Snodgrass into the fold in January, with the hope that he would replicate his early-season form.

At Hull City, the 29-year-old scored seven goals in 20 appearances in the first half of the 2016-17 campaign.

However, at West Ham he was not as goal-hungry; in fact the Scotsman failed to score in 15 Premier League outings.

Now, it has been claimed by BBC Sport that Slaven Bilic is willing to offload him from his squad, with the club open to a permanent or loan deal.

According to the Daily Mail, Sunderland manager Simon Grayson has admitted that he is interested in signing Snodgrass, but the betting market does not reflect that.

As it stands, Villa are 8/13 favourites with William Hill to take the winger from West Ham, while the Black Cats are 12/1.

Newcastle United are also in the running as far as the bookies’ are concerned, with BetVictor offering odds of 6/1, making Rafael Benitez’s side second favourites to sign Snodgrass.

If the former Norwich City player were to join Villa, then it could be a smooth transition as he has already worked with manager Steve Bruce during the pair’s time together at Hull.
