By Russell Edge

Aston Villa fans have been left divided on social media after it was announced midfielder Carlos Sanchez would be joining Fiorentina on a permanent deal.

The Columbian international has been on a season-long loan at the Viola from Villa Park and manager Streve Bruce was quoted by the Birmingham Mail as saying that the Italian side would be making the deal permanent.

The 31-year-old joined Villa in 2014 and went on to make 54 appearances across all competitions for the Midlands club, scoring a solitary goal in a 3-2 defeat to Manchester City.

He left the club following relegation to join Fiorentina on loan, where he has made 39 appearances across all competitions, scoring a single goal.

Following the news of his departure, Aston Villa fans took to social media to react, and it is fair to say that fans were divided over his departure.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Aston Villa go in to the final day of the season knowing that they could still play a pivotal role in the title race, as they play league leaders Brighton, with Newcastle just a single point behind the Seagulls.

The Villans, who currently sit 12th in the Championship, can realistically finish as high as 11th, but could also drop to 14th if results fail to go their way.
