Aston Villa are apparently interested in West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Boaz Myhill.

Aston Villa fans appear to have had a mixed reaction to the rumours suggesting that Boaz Myhill could be set to move to them from West Bromwich Albion.

Roberto Di Matteo worked with Myhill at the Hawthorns, and the Italian boss reportedly wants to reunite with the 33-year-old stopper at Villa Park.

Myhill began his career at Villa, but he was deemed surplus to requirements and has gone on to represent Hull and Albion.

According to the Express and Star, Villa now want to bring Myhill back to the club - as they consider him an upgrade on their current goalkeeping options.

Mark Bunn and Brad Guzan are currently competing for Villa’s number one shirt, but neither impressed much last season.

Claret and Blues fans seem divided over whether Myhill would actually be a good addition, though. Here is the best reaction on Twitter.

West Brom fans are seemingly more united over the transfer - and most suggest that they would rather the American-born custodian did not move on.

Myhill has done a credible job as cover for Ben Foster, and he is well regarded by West Brom supporters.
