Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are reacting after a player they were linked with earlier in the summer signed for Aston Villa.
The move sees Konsa reunited with his former Brentford manager, Dean Smith, at Villa Park, and leaves Wolves search for a new centre-half ongoing.
For some of a Wolves persuasion, their side's failure to pursue the England Under-21 international was something of an oversight, whereas others are ready to trust the Wanderers decision-makers.
This is what they're saying on Twitter...
If Wolves wanted Ezri Konsa, Wolves would have Ezri Konsa. #WWFC— southbanklaffs (@southbanklaffs) July 11, 2019

I think Wolves have bigger fish to fry. It was confirmed by Nuno that Saliba was a target and Benoit still is. Both 18 with more potential. Konsa is decent but already 21 and not picked up by any of the big boys. Obviously has serious flaws in his game.— 1877Wolves (@WolvesTruth) July 11, 2019
Obviously Dean Smith knows him better than anyone as hes his ex manager. Doubt we'll be buying mid table Championship defenders, we need proven quality now to step in when needed unless they are going into the U23 squad.— Wolfgar (@GarnerRichie) July 11, 2019
Good signing for Villa in Konsa, would of liked him down the wolves. Even if he doesn’t turn out to be prem standard at 21 and being English he’s only going to be worth more in the future .— Jord_Potter™ (@jordpotter10) July 11, 2019
Trying to look through #WWFC for transfer rumours and it’s mostly #AVFC fans talking about Konsa, a player the club weren’t interested in beyond a rumour from some news outlet. I’d focus more on the fact that you’ve spent £91m and still not improved your team from last season.— Sam Johnson (@Topgearsam) July 11, 2019
Konsa is not the only player with whom both Aston Villa and Wolves have been linked in the summer transfer window, with Leeds United's Kalvin Phillips the latest.
According to the Mirror, Phillips has turned down Leeds' initial offer of a new contract.
Aston Villa and Wolves are set to lock horns once again at Premier League level, seven years after doing so last.
