‘Would snap ya hands off for him’: Some fans react to reported interest in ‘great’ Aston Villa player

Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane is reportedly on the radar of Swansea and Middlesbrough, according to TEAMtalk.

The 29-year-old is a cult hero at Villa Park, his heroics in 2018-19 helping the club to promotion back to the Premier League.

Hourihane registered seven goals and 12 assists in 43 Championship regular-season games, and also netted in the playoff semi-final first leg.

However, he has struggled for game time this season, with just three starts in the top flight, and as such, Villa are reportedly willing to let him go.

TEAMtalk claims that Championship promotion chasers Swansea are hopeful of a deal and are currently frontrunners for Hourihane’s signature, but Boro have made an approach too.

And both sets of fans seem eager to bring the Republic of Ireland international on board, with some of the social media reaction below:

 

Hourihane joined Villa in January 2017 from Barnsley for a reported £3.15million fee, and has made 150 competitive appearances in claret and blue.
