Aston Villa owner comments on rumours linking star man with Premier League move



Aston Villa owner Dr. Tony Xia has moved to pour cold water on rumours suggesting that Jonathan Kodjia is a summer target for Premier League duo Everton and Stoke City.

Quoting an Aston Villa fan page (villareport) on Twitter – who posted that The Mirror were reporting Everton and Stoke’s interest in Kodjia – Dr. Tony Xia sent a tweet to fans which appeared to suggest that he has no interest whatsoever in entertaining any offers for Jonathan Kodjia.

Jonathan Kodjia has caught the eye recently with eight goals in his last eight games taking his tally to 19 Championship goals for the season.

The impressive Ivory Coast international has proved a handful for Championship defences over the last two seasons and recent reports were linking him with a step up to the Premier League.

However, Xia appealed for “no more rumours”, claiming that Villa needed “stability and calmness in the dressing room”.

The Aston Villa owner added that he did not like tricks by the media or by agents.

Aston Villa fans – is this positive news? Will you keep Kodjia this summer if the PL clubs come calling? Let us know in the comments below…
