‘Legend’ – Aston Villa set to hand John McGinn a new contract amid Man United rumours, some fans react

John McGinn has been linked with Manchester United.

Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn is set to be handed a lucrative new contract, according to The Scottish Sun. Amid interest from Manchester United, Aston Villa are moving to tie their midfield star down.

McGinn joined from Hibernian last summer in a £2.75m (Sun) deal. This has proved to be a bargain as he played a pivotal role in the club’s promotion back to the Premier League.

The Scotland international played 43 times, racking up a tally of seven goals and 10 assists. But his most decisive moment of the season was his play-off final goal against Derby County.

McGinn headed in from close-range against the Rams at Wembley to put Aston Villa 2-0 up. The game ended 2-1 so McGinn’s goal proved to be the winner as Aston Villa sealed their top-flight return.

Now, ahead of the Premier League season, the Villans are desperate to keep the 24-year-old. West Ham and Leicester have also been interested in McGinn (Daily Mail) but Aston Villa could be set to keep him.

Aston Villa have slapped a £50m price tag on McGinn’s head to fend off competitors. And now they will give him a new contract to put this speculation to bed. Here is some reaction from fans.
