‘Need younger and faster’ – Aston Villa fans debate whether to keep veteran midfielder Glenn Whelan

Glenn Whelan is out of contract in the summer.

Midfielder Glenn Whelan has played a major role in Aston Villa’s recent run of form which has seen them jump into the play-off zone.

Five consecutive wins have seen Aston Villa climb into sixth place with seven games left to play in the Championship.

Whelan has been a key player in the revival. The Republic of Ireland international is playing an important role in midfield for the Villans.

Since his improvement in form, Aston Villa fans have started wondering whether to reward him with a new contract.

The 35-year-old is out of contract at the end of this season and is currently playing for an extension.

Talks are likely to be shelved until the summer and his future might depend on whether or not Aston Villa win promotion.

But it has become a debate which has split opinion among some Aston Villa supporters. Should Whelan be rewarded for his form or do Aston Villa need to look to the future?

Here are some tweets from Aston Villa fans discussing whether the club should offer Whelan a new contract this summer.
