Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Vlaar's contract demands

Trinity Road Stand - Aston Villa

We compile the best reaction from Aston Villa fans after reports emerged that Ron Vlaar wants to double his wages.

Aston Villa supporters have had a mixed reaction to whether the club should offer Ron Vlaar a new contract or not.

The Dutch defender wants to double his wages if he is handed a new contract and has requested to be on £50,000-a-week, according to a report.

It is a sizeable fee for a player whose stock has risen considerably in recent times. 

After a brilliant World Cup, interest in Vlaar stepped up and the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal have both been linked.

The 29-year-old currently has fewer than 12 months remaining on his contract, which expires next summer, and it means that the Premier League giants are hoping to pick him up on a free transfer.

Whilst this would be a blow for Villa, many feel that the club would be better off letting him go because of his injury record.

Vlaar has suffered with injuries throughout his career at Villa Park and paying such inflated wages for a players who spends so much time is a risk that many feel that the club should not make.

However, others are of the opinion that Vlaar is so vital to the side that they simply cannot afford to lose him - whatever the cost.

Here is the best reaction on Twitter from Villa supporters over whether or not they should offer Vlaar a new, improved contract.
