Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to rumours linking Ciaran Clark with West Bromwich Albion

Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark has been linked with a move to West Bromwich Albion.

Aston Villa supporters have had a mixed reaction to the rumours linking Ciaran Clark with West Bromwich Albion.

The Sun say that Clark has been lined up for a £5 million move by West Brom, as they look to capitalise on their rival’s relegation.

Villa are expected to offload many of their first-team players, as they look to cut costs to adapt to life in the Championship.

Although the departures of many of Villa’s current squad would be welcomed with open arms by the supporters of the Midlands side, they seem divided over Clark’s possible move.

Clark came through Villa’s academy, and he is still well regarded by followers of the Claret and Blues, but there is a realisation that he needs to improve.

Clark has never truly nailed down a place in Villa’s first-team, and he is still prone to making errors.

He is expected to have a big part to play in the Championship, however, and it seems that if Villa did decide to sell him they would face a mixed reaction from their fans.
