Aston Villa fans urge club to sign Snodgrass after he reportedly rejects new deal
By Amir Mir
Hull winger Robert Snodgrass has reportedly turned down a new contract offer – and Aston Villa fans on Twitter have urged the club to sign him in January.
Sky Sports reported on Wednesday morning that the 29-year-old, whose contract runs out in the summer, rejected a new offer from the Premier League club.
As a result of the reports Villa fans on Social Media urged manager Steve Bruce to sign the winger.
Bruce signed Snodgrass during his time at Hull, but he was unable to work with the Scotland international as much as he would have liked because of injury.
Nonetheless, supporters urged their manager to reunite with the versatile attacker who is having a brilliant campaign, despite his team struggling.

Fans believe he would add some much-needed creativity into the team and add goals from the middle of the park.
One supporter stated that he would like to see Ross McCormack and Ashley Westwood leave the club and would like to see Brentford striker Scott Hogan and Snodgrass as their replacements.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
So, Snodgrass has turned down a new deal. I'd take him at villa. Knows Bruce, a great set piece taker and would improve the squad. #avfc

If you could get Snodgrass, Delph and Sako to #avfc, you'd be looking good. Do not understand the issue with Gollini and Tshibola.

Snodgrass has been in top form for the Tigers this season, despite Mike Phelan’s side struggling in the relegation zone.
In 18 Premier League and EFL Cup games, he has scored seven goals and supplied two assists, with five goals coming in the league.
This despite the newly-promoted side sitting rock-bottom of the table on 12 points from 17 league games, losing 11 of those encounters.
