Jordan Amavi started the match as Aston Villa fell to a 3-1 defeat against Reading on Saturday afternoon – and fans on Twitter want the 23-year-old sold in the summer.

Steve Bruce, who had been utilising Amavi on the left wing in recent weeks, started the Frenchman at left-back against the Royals after an injury to first team regular Neil Taylor.

The day didn’t start well for Amavi when his mistake, deep into his own half, led to Joesph Mendes opening the scoring for the visitors after six minutes.

Despite the home team pulling one back, Amavi, who was being exposed on the left-hand side, was out of position once again as Mendes netted his second immediately after the break.

After his horror showing in defence, Bruce opted to substitute him off after 63 minutes with striker Scott Hogan coming onto the field.

Despite the attacking change, the mistakes didn’t stop with Leandro Bacuna, who was now playing at left-back, bringing down Liam Kelly in the penalty area.

Lewis Grabban, who was quiet for the majority of the game, coolly dispatched his side’s third goal 11 minutes from time.

There is no surprise that the Villa Park faithful were angry with Amavi for his performance against the promotion-chasing outfit.

Many stated that they would move him on in the summer as others questioned how the club reportedly turn down a £25million bid for him in the summer.

The club’s owner, Tony Xia, stated at the start of the campaign that the Midlands side did turn down a big money offer for the Frenchman.
