Villa's 2017/18 season began with a 1-1 draw against which team?

The article relayed news originally posted in a report by Fotomac via Sport Witness that Turkish side Galatasaray are interested in signing Samatta from Villa this summer.

Should Villa keep or cash in on Samatta if they get relegated?

Keep him

Cash in

This post then gathered a number of replies from Villa fans who were keen to have their say on this latest development.

Here’s a sample of Villa fans responding to the post:

The striker recently joined the Birmingham club in the previous January transfer window from Belgian side KRC Genk for a fee of £9.45 million (per Transfermarkt). After making just six appearances for the Birmingham club, Samatta has already been linked with a move away from Villa Park. This news then gathered a big reaction on Twitter.

What do we think?

It seems unlikely that Samatta would leave the club he has just arrived at. But with Villa currently in the relegation zone, if they were to get relegated then he could possibly leave for another club.
