Aston Villa fans react as club reportedly inch closer to Kerr Smith signing
Aston Villa fans have taken to social media following reports that the club are leading the race to sign 16-year-old Dundee United defender Kerr Smith, beating out the likes of Manchester United for the teenage centre-back.
The Scottish Sun report that Villa will pay £500,000 plus add-ons for the Scottish prospect, taking the lead ahead of United to claim the signature of Smith, who has made three first-team appearances for the Terrors this season since signing his first professional deal with the club back in November of last year.
Villa boasts one of the most impressive youth set ups in the Premier League, with a plethora of exciting youngsters coming through the club and likely to be introduced into the first team next season, and supporters on social media were delighted to see Dean Smith’s side continue to scour the land for the most exciting young players coming through the United Kingdom.
Here’s what some Villa fans had to say about this latest update surrounding Smith on Twitter…
Funny one this. He was pretty much signed in the summer last year. Don’t know what happened but he’s a talent. https://t.co/jjkGQL5Own
