Fans of Aston Villa have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports of Fenerbahce’s interest in Villa winger Trezeguet.
According to reports in Turkish newspaper Takvim (via Sport Witness), Fenerbahce have held talks with Trezeguet over a possible loan move, with the Super Lig outfit reportedly promising to match the winger’s wages at Villa, as well as being keen on installing an option-to-buy clause into the loan deal.
The reports go on to suggest that Trezeguet’s agent has told Fenerbahce that his client will leave 19th-placed Aston Villa if they fail to secure their Premier League status this season.
Should Villa accept the loan deal with an option to buy, it is reported that the club would be willing to accept a fee of around €8 million (£7.1 million), whereas Fenerbahce are looking to pay around €6 million (£5.4 million) for the 25-year old.
In reaction to the reports, which were relayed on Twitter by @villareport, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the matter, with many claiming that they would be happy for the winger to leave the club this summer.
just get rid of him. If he is talking about going if relegated when he should be actually putting a shift in for once to keep us up. Inconsistent and over rated

Can he leave even if we stay up too? #avfc

Apart from odd glimpses he’s been a failure at Villa. Bad timing for agent to say this too. I’d say his hearts not in it but the bloke hasn’t got much heart from what I’ve seen.

He ain’t even championship quality

Since joining Villa from Kasimpasa for a fee of £9 million last summer, Trezeguet has gone on to make 31 appearances for the club, scoring four goals and providing three assists.
However, his form in the league has been patchy at best, and, although he has scored three goals and provided one assist for Villa in the Premier League over his 24 appearances in the competition, his average WhoScored match rating of 6.57/10 is slightly disappointing.
Would you be happy to sell Trezeguet this summer?
Despite this, some Villa fans would apparently like to see the winger remain at the club beyond the end of this season.
Sell jota or el ghazi instead ?

So another rumour and people turn on him as if he has said this himself?????

As such, it would appear that the majority of these Villa fans would like to see the winger move on this summer, while others think that the club should sell other players of theirs before Trezeguet.
