Aston Villa fans have been reacting to reports claiming their side are prepared to let Callum O’Hare leave the club.
The Coventry City loan sensation will see his deal at boyhood club Villa come to an end this summer, with Mark Robins able to approach him with a deal to join his side tomorrow.
O’Hare, The Athletic claim, hasn’t had a new deal offered to him since last year with discussions failing to reach that stage since.
The 22-year-old Solihull-born playmaker made 29 appearances in League One for City this season, his four goals and seven assists helping the club into the Championship.

City are planning for life back in the second tier of English football next season after they were promoted via a ‘points-per-game’ formula because the campaign was curtailed early because of the coronavirus pandemic.
With Championship football a possibility for Villa next season, their fans are puzzled as to why O’Hare hasn’t been offered a new deal.
“That’s a bit…shortsighted,” one fan said.
“That will come back and bite us,” said another.
“We don’t learn, do we?” asked a third.
“Think we could of done with him in championship if we go down,” added another.
“Absolute madness,” said a fifth.
A sixth said: “That’s disappointing.”
“This is laughable if true?!” another said.
O’Hare made 40 appearances in all competitions for City last season.
