According to the Daily Mail, Championship side Aston Villa are very keen on bringing in Scotland international Robert Snodgrass from West Ham this transfer window.

Snodgrass joined West Ham in January to fill the void which Dimitri Payet left when he went back to Marseille and although they were huge boots to fill, he did not impress.

In the first half of the season, when he was at Hull, he was their star-man which earned him his move to the London Stadium so there’s no doubt he has talent but he just couldn’t cut it at West Ham, making 15 appearances and only getting two assists and not scoring any goals.

Snodgrass’ future at West Ham looks bleak, with many fans wanting him out and Manuel Lanzini, Andre Ayew, Michail Antonio and new signing Marko Arnautovic are all ahead of the Scot in the pecking order.

Aston Villa would be getting a very experienced Championship player if they get their man, with 104 appearances, scoring 23 goals and getting 29 assists in spells with Leeds and Hull.

Due to Financial Fair Play (FFP), the transfer will have to be a loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
