Aston Villa supporters have had a mixed reaction to the rumours linking Ciaran Clark with West Bromwich Albion.
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.
1. Not sure why loads of people are suddenly anti-Clark. Obviously, I'd prefer him to stay at #AVFC.— Thomas Fox (@TomFox90) May 22, 2016
I'm happy with Baker and Toner at CB next year, Clark can do one for all I care. Not kicked on #AVFC— Vince (@v90avfc) May 22, 2016
Clark is one of a few I'd keep. I think he'd be a good captain and him and Baker could be good— Harry Johnson (@avfc_johnson) May 22, 2016
Hate to see our academy graduates leave but Clark has been a poor player in multiple poor teams over the years, £5 million is generous #avfc— Richard (@_RichardAVFC) May 22, 2016
