Aston Villa’s fears over Robert Snodgrass’ future at Villa Park have been eased, with the winger set to remain with the Sky Bet Championship outfit for the remainder of the season and not return to West Ham United, as reported by the Mirror’s live transfer blog (15/01, 20:24).
Snodgrass is currently on a season-long loan at Villa Park, but despite David Moyes, current West Ham boss, taking a look at the possibility of the winger returning, he will be remaining in the Championship for the remainder of the season.
The 30-year-old has developed into a key part of Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa squad, who have promotion hopes in the Championship this season, having put themselves in a fantastic position during the first-half of the campaign.
Villa currently sit fourth in the Championship table, with Snodgrass featuring in 22 of the club’s 27 league fixtures so far.
During those 22 appearances, Snodgrass has scored six goals and also registered a further six assists.
The Scot has been in terrific form over the last three fixtures, scoring three goals and registering one assist, as Villa tighten their grip on a place in the top-six.
It was Snodgrass’ assist for Scott Hogan that helped Villa to a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest last weekend.
This is a huge boost for Aston Villa, and one that will particularly please Bruce, who has a lot of faith in Snodgrass.
Snodgrass’ form over the last three weeks has coincided with Villa’s most recent revival, with the Scottish winger showing his importance to Bruce’s side.
With Snodgrass in their ranks, Villa will feel promotion is a real possibility.
