Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Ashley Cole links

The experienced left-back has been linked with a move to Villa Park.

According to the Daily Star, Aston Villa are considering a January move for Ashley Cole.

Reaction, it's safe to say, has been mixed.

Indeed, it seems every possible point of view has been expressed. Some think signing the experienced left-back would be a no-brainer. Others feel another Cole (similar to Joe) would be a no-brainer to decline.

It all depends on what those at Aston Villa, hopefully including manager Remi Garde, think of the matter. Jordan Amavi's injury has left Villa short at the back but they could recall Aly Cissokho from his loan spell at Porto.

Would that be the preferable option over signing Cole, were he available, though? The 34-year-old has experience of Premier League football and was England's best in his day.

Right now, however, Cole can't get into the Roma side and may struggle to produce the standard of physicality required in the Premier League.

It's no surprise, then, that opinion among the Aston Villa faithful has been mixed on Twitter after reports circulated they could be interested in the full-back. Here's a selection of what fans have been saying on social media... what do you think of the suggested interest?
