Tom Heaton has joined Aston Villa from Burnley in the summer transfer window.

Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Tom Heaton against RB Leipzig.

Villa were in action on Saturday afternoon, as the promoted Premier League outfit took on Leipzig in Germany. Dean Smith’s side won the match 3-1 and maintained their perfect record in pre-season friendly matches.

Heaton was in action for the Villans, and the 33-year-old produced a brilliant performance on his debut for the Villa Park outfit.

The former Manchester United prospect made a number of saves throughout the game and also marshalled the backline well.

The England international goalkeeper denied Marcel Sabitzer, Timo Werner and Christopher Nkunku.

Heaton joined Villa – who will play in the Premier League next season after clinching promotion from the Championship via the playoffs – from Burnley in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £8 million.

Villa fans were impressed with the performance of Heaton against Leipzig and have praised the 33-year-old goalkeeper on Twitter.
