Aston Villa given major boost in pursuit of permanent deal for nine-assist winger



Aston Villa loanee Robert Snodgrass is keen to complete a permanent move in the summer when his season-long loan deal from West Ham United expires.

The winger has been in excellent form since linking up with Steve Bruce’s side in the summer, with The Birmingham Mail reporting that the Scottish international is hopeful his parent club will allow him to leave when the transfer window reopens in June.

The Villains are in fantastic form, and have wrestled the second automatic promotion spot away from rivals, Derby County.

A tough trip to Fulham awaits this weekend, but with the Championship’s leading assist maker in their ranks in the form of Snodgrass, Bruce’s side have an excellent chance of consolidating their position in the top two.

Snodgrass is reportedly keen to make the switch regardless of Villa’s league status next season, with the former Hull City man extremely happy in the West Midlands.

The Verdict

West Ham parted with around £10 million to bring Snodgrass to the club, and the Hammers are likely to demand a fee in this region to allow the player to depart the London Stadium in the summer.

The Scot could certainly play a role in East London, but having been ousted from the side under former boss Slavisa Jokanovic and welcomed as a hero at Villa Park, it appears the player’s mind may well be made up.

Villa look likely to go up this year, and should they do so, will easily have the cash to fund a move for the player.
