Which Aston Villa players would fans not mind seeing head for the exit door this month?
Aston Villa's Ashley Westwood in action
As the January transfer window passes the halfway mark, HITC Sport has put together a poll looking at the Aston Villa players that perhaps some would not mind seeing move on this month. But before we give the fans the chance to vote, here is a look at the five contenders...
After playing a major part in the Aston Villa side that were relegated from the Premier League, Ashley Westwood's chances at Villa Park this season have been limited. With most Villa fans feeling the team needs a new centre midfielder, could the end of the line be near for Westwood's Villa career?
Joining the Villans in 2011, Hutton has been sent out on loan three times during his time at Villa Park, after struggling to find any consistency at the back. Another member of Villa's squad who saw the team humiliated in the Premier League last season, could Hutton be a contender for the exit door?
Gabriel Agbonlahor of Aston Villa
After a difficult spell last season, losing his place completely in the Aston Villa side, Gabriel Agbonlahor has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence under new Villa boss, Steve Bruce. However, with his age catching up with him, and the excellent Jonathan Kodjia now holding down the lone striker role, might Agbonlahor be looking for regular football elsewhere?
Given the captain's armband under Tim Sherwood, Micah Richards was seen by most Villa fans as an excellent signing when he joined the Villans from Manchester City in 2015. However, after Villa's disastrous season in the Premier League, Richards has lost both the armband and his place in the team, and could well be a contender for the exit door.
Aston Villa's Ross McCormack
After joining the Villans from Fulham in the summer, for a fee reported by the BBC to be in the region of £12 million, Ross McCormack has struggled to make his mark on the Villa faithful. Scoring just three goals so far for the Villans, some Villa fans have grown tired of McCormack already, and would rather a more regular goal scorer takes his place.
