Aston Villa striker Jordan Ayew is in talks to join French club Bordeaux- and supporters on Twitter reacted with mixed emotions with some stating he should leave if he does not want to be at the club.
It is said the club’s manager [Jocelyn Gourvennec] wants to bring the Ghana international back to France and that talks have begun with the Championship side about the services of their striker.
The versatile attacker has attracted interest from across Europe in the last few weeks, including Turkish giants Galatasaray.
Villa legend Paul McGrath posted on his personal Twitter account that Roberto Di Matteo should look to keep hold of his striker as he is one of a few who can “hold his head high”.
But, other supporters were more blunt by stating if the 24-year-old wants to leave then he can happily do so.
Some supporters compared the forward with the recently departed Christian Benteke by stating, unlike Benteke, Ayew is replaceable at Villa Park after netting seven goals last season as the club were relegated into the second tier.
Here are the supporters reaction to Ayew’s possible departure.
As regards Jordan Ayew staying at Aston Villa , il be asking the man Upstairs to ask him please stay ! One of the few can hold his head high

Jordan Ayew is one of my favourite players at the Villa but unlike Benteke was last year, he's very much replaceable if he does leave.

Be gutted if Ayew goes. One of the only players who knew where the back of the net was last season ? #avfc

@TheHolteTweets unfortunately it's inevitable that some of players we want to keep will leave, as long as the cash is re-invested properly
