COMMENTARY

Sun journalist Alan Nixon revealed, via his personal Twitter account, that were hunting the transfer market for a new No.1 goalkeeper, and some Villans fans already know who they want the club to sign. This player is none other than Stoke City’s . Upon Nixon detailing the Villan’s summer transfer hunt, a number of Villa supporters claimed the 26-year-old Stoke City keeper was the ideal shot-stopper to sign, with one stating that they thought he was a quality keeper. Butland, who earns £35,000-a-week (Source: Spotrac), played 45 times for the Potters in the Championship in his 2018/19 campaign, and conceded 51 goals while keeping 18 clean sheets. The 26-year-old would surely be open to joining the Villans if they opted to pursue his services despite him being a regular at Stoke, as he is no doubt itching to play his football in the Premier League again. The Villans would be making a smart decision if they opted to listen to the fans below, as given that Butland is Premier League proven after featuring 77 times in the division; he’d be a safe pair of hands to call upon, now that Villa have been promoted.
