A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to react after a report from the Express and Star suggested that Douglas Luiz is expected to be offered a new contract.
Villa have been incredibly proactive in agreeing new deals with their key men. As noted by the Express and Star, Jack Grealish, John McGinn, Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa are amongst those to extend their terms this year.
And it appears that the club are not done yet. According to the Express and Star, Douglas Luiz is expected to be presented with the chance to follow the lead of several of his teammates.
The 22-year-old has proved to be an inspired signing for Dean Smith’s side. Even if he has gone off the boil slightly in recent weeks, it would be a major statement to tie him down for longer.
It is easy to forget just how young the midfielder is. He has already made more than 150 appearances during his club career. And he boasts a number of caps for Brazil.
The future looks to be incredibly bright for the former Manchester City man. And it appears that many Villa supporters would be over the moon if he signed a new contract.
‘Would be great’
He has been integral to Villa’s fortunes this season. And ensuring that he is more likely to stay for the coming years would be another step in the right direction for the club.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the report…
Would be great to tie him down. Dropped off recently like most of the players but he is still young and will be a top player

Still only 22 and with 55 Premier appearances for Villa and 5 National for Brazil. And some are surprised we are negotiating a new contract.Douglas on course to become a top player.

Good news if so. He’s getting some undeserved slander at the moment from people with short memories. He’s out of form, but he’s young and form will go through peaks and troughs.
