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.
It has been an incredibly difficult time for Wesley since the Villans parted with £22 million in 2019. As noted in the report, the move made him the club’s then-record signing.
Unfortunately, he only scored five goals before his first season was brought to an end due to injury. And he only returned towards the end of the last campaign.
It now seems that he is going to spend the coming year with his former club back in Belgium.
According to The Athletic, a loan deal is expected to be finalised in the next 24 to 48 hours.
Interestingly, the report suggests that Villa are keeping their options open when it comes to the Brazilian’s future.
They hope he is a success so he can either return to the fold or see his value increase ahead of a future sale.
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.
‘Definitely the right move’: Aston Villa fans react as Wesley closes in on loan move
Some believe that he has already made his final appearance for the Villans. And they are hoping that he does well to give Villa the best chance of recouping as much of the £22 million as possible.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
Perfect for Wesley to spend a season on loan in a less ruthless league.
Ings, Watkins, Davis, Archer and Bailey can all play up top.

Back to familiar surroundings will undoubtedly do him the world of good. Maybe his time with Villa has run its course, maybe not, we’ll see.
I genuinely just want the man to have a good career, no matter where it’s at, because he’s shown that on his day, he can play.

I would have liked to have seen him go to a stronger league ideally but that would require someone from one of those leagues going in for him with a good chance of giving him mins.
I’d say it is almost certainly the last we’ll see of him. It’s a real shame how it has played out

Definitely the right move because he’s not likely to figure much and I fear it is the end for him as I’m not sure that he fits the way we play as shown even tonight.

Yeah. I had a feeling we would try and get him back to Belgium. Not sure we will see him again to be fair.

It is absolutely the end for him here. The level of the squad is moving past him. Gotta hope he has a good loan spell so we can recoup some of the investment made.

He needs game time. I hope he gets another chance next year.
