Aston Villa fans debate over Jonathan Kodjia’s future

Aston Villa supporters have been debating on Twitter over whether or not Jonathan Kodjia will remain at the club this summer.

Manager Steve Bruce has made it clear that he wants to keep hold of the 27-year-old striker, but he did suggest that it may be difficult to do so.

The Birmingham Mail quotes the boss as saying:

“You can never say never in football. We’ll try our damnedest to keep hold of him but football is football. We’ll do our best to keep hold of him, that’s for sure.”

If clubs do come in for Kodjia at the end of the season, it is not hard to see why due to the impact that he has made in just eight months.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Villans from Bristol City in August in a reported £11m deal.

Since his transfer, the forward has scored 17 goals in 31 appearances in the Championship.

The problem that Villa face is that other clubs could try to poach him by offering top-level football because it looks as though the Midlands outfit will miss out on promotion as they are 10 points adrift of the playoffs.

Villa owner Tony Xia has tweeted about the situation by replying to a supporter, which prompted a discussion among fans.
