Aston Villa fans react to Wesley loan exit reports

A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Athletic claiming that Wesley is set to join Club Brugge on loan.

For many supporters however, it is extremely difficult to imagine the 24-year-old playing for the club again.

He struggled during his first few months in the Midlands. And he has now fallen right down the pecking order, with Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings since joining the club.

Meanwhile, youngsters such as Cameron Archer are now knocking on the door.

With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
