The chairman of Aston Villa, Tony Xia, sent fans into a frenzy yesterday as he tweeted about the club’s final dip into the transfer market before it closes.
There were no specific names mentioned by the Chinese businessman, just that they have been discussing terms with this player for one week and that he hopes it will be the right decision.
Following on from reports by the Mail Online that suggested Steve Bruce is closing in on a loan move for West Ham winger Robert Snodgrass, his was the name to be mentioned the most in the Villa fans replies.
Strangely enough, former star striker Christian Benteke had his name mentioned an awful lot in the replies to Xia’s tweet as well.
Who this player is remains to be seen, but that didn’t stop the Villa fans shouting out their suggestions and giving their thoughts and opinions on these potential deals.
So, what exactly did the Villains think? FLW Adam Goacher has taken to Twitter to find out exactly what fans of the club think about Tony Xia’s vague tweet…
If its Snodgrass Tony, outstanding business in my opinion. Most of us understand FFP (you've done your best, that will do for me) #UTV

Who actually thinks we could get Benteke back in the Championship? Have a word with yourself.

Snodgrass would be a great signing! Only concern now is that we only have 1 LB. Other than that, squad complete. #AVFC
