Reading fans are absolutely raving about the performances of Leandro Bacuna, which may be a shock to some Aston Villa supporters.
Bacuna joined Reading from Villa in the summer transfer window, and most claret and blues supporters were not at all disappointed to see the defender depart.
Bacuna had not impressed during his time at Villa Park, with his attitude frequently questioned.
However, Reading fans have immediately taken the Dutch full-back to their hearts.
Bacuna has impressed the Madejski Stadium crowd with his defensive and attacking ability.
And the 26-year-old was in brilliant form last night, as Reading picked up a 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest.
Bacuna proved a constant menace to the Forest defence, and Reading fans have been very quick to praise him on social media.

Bacuna is so underrated ! Also thought aluko looked so much better with barrow on either wings ! Would take a point Saturday #Readingfc— cameron macken (@ronniemac93) November 1, 2017
What a game Leandro Bacuna had tonight. #readingfc— ConnorHaylock (@ConnorHaylock) October 31, 2017
This first 45 from Bacuna is the best I’ve seen from any Reading player this season. #hottake— Jonny Williams (@jonnafon) October 31, 2017
Bacuna also worth nothing, adds real drive and energy and probably his best showing in a #readingfc shirt so far this season too— Jonathan Low (@jonathanl50) October 31, 2017
Whether Villa would have needed Bacuna this season is up for debate, but if he keeps performing to this standard then Steve Bruce may regret not having the option to call upon the former Groningen man as the campaign progresses.
