Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton is out for the rest of the season.

Ian Wright has taken to Twitter to send a message to Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

The Arsenal legend has wished Heaton the best of luck in his recovery from a long-term injury, and has said that he is “gutted” for him.

According to BBC Sport, the 33-year-old goalkeeper will miss the rest of the season with knee ligament damage.

Blow for Aston Villa

Heaton is the first-choice goalkeeper for Villa and has been playing well for Dean Smith’s side this season.

The long-term injury to the England international will come as a blow for the Villans, who are aiming to avoid the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of the season.

Villa are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with 21 points from 21 matches, just a point above the relegation zone.

The Villans will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Fulham away from home at Craven Cottage in the third round of the FA Cup.
