Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to react after Crystal Palace announced the signing of Michael Olise from Reading.

The 19-year-old is moving to south London for just £8m, after Patrick Vieira’s side activated his release clause.

It’s a simply fantastic signing. Olise scored seven goals and provided 12 assists in the Championship last season.

Only Emiliano Buendia set up more goals with 16 assists, although he has cost substantially more than Olise at £33m.

An attack of Ollie Watkins, Jack Grealish, Buendia and Olise would’ve been absolutely outstanding, so why didn’t Dean Smith make it happen?

The Villans have great financial strength, so surely they could’ve easily afforded the £8m clause.

Aston Villa have also shown far more ambition than Crystal Palace in recent years, so their project is arguably more attractive.
