Aston Villa supporters have had a mixed reaction to the rumours that they are set to loan out Jack Grealish.
Derby County are said by the Daily Mail to be competing for the youngster’s signature, alongside Leeds and Queens Park Rangers.
The Championship trio all believe that they could land Grealish on a temporary basis, but Villa fans are divided over the idea that their prized prospect could leave.
Grealish was one of Villa’s main players under Tim Sherwood, and he showed his ability in patches.
Since Remi Garde has taken charge the 20-year-old has been handed a more peripheral role, though, and he has not played much first team football recently.
Grealish has been forced to play in the under-21’s as punishment, and despite Villa’s struggles he has failed to establish his place in Garde’s first choice line up.
Some Villa fans do not want to see the youngster leave, and they have made their opinion on the rumours very clear on social media site Twitter.
Others have suggested that a move is what Grealish needs to get back on track. Here’s the best reaction.
@DavidKershaw7 but I think sending Grealish out is a bad idea!— Luke Morris (@LukeMorris_) January 6, 2016
if Garde sends Grealish out on loan it confirms the fact that he is a silly man— Trap Jesus (@TomSevers) January 6, 2016
@davethedecker 442 is our best team Guzan,Richards,okore,lescott,Clark,Adama,gil,Verotout,Grealish,Ayew, Gestede, yet never been used— Richard preece (@awesomefool678) January 6, 2016
Gabby should go this January but not Grealish. Yes he's gone off the rails on occasions & needs guidance but he's a talent we need. #AVFC— Kevin Hughes (@kevinhughes348) January 5, 2016
Please go on loan to derby Grealish— Con (@ConCarpAvfc) January 5, 2016
@AVFCTransTweet hasn't looked bothered since RG took over,probably in a huff for being punished for getting Grealished after our 4-0 at EFC.— Tubbs Tattsyrup (@briannaylor8) January 5, 2016
@AVFCTransTweet he desperately needs it. Nowhere near the standard needed to play in prem league— Adam whitehouse (@Adamw1985) January 5, 2016
