Aston Villa fans react to Domagoj Vida transfer link

Aston Villa fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction to reports linking their club with a move for Domagoj Vida.

Dean Smith’s side have already signed Danny Drinkwater on loan from Chelsea, and are close to signing former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.


Signing a striker, maybe more than one, is a priority for Villa. However, Villa, who are fighting for survival this season, are looking to bolster their defence as well.

According to reports from Fotospor (h/t Sport Witness), Villa are close to signing Vida from Turkish club Besiktas in the January transfer window.

The 79-times capped Croatian international has emerged as a possible option for Villa, and the club has tabled an offer in the region of £5.1 million already. Besiktas are looking at a fee of around £8.5 million and are willing to let him go this month.

Many Villa fans are divided in opinion about whether it would be a right move to sign him. Here are some of the selected tweets:
