Report: Aston Villa set to lose international star to PL side in summer window
Aston Villa look set to lose the services of the Scottish international Robert Snodgrass, as West Ham are keen to give him another Premier League chance, according to a report.
Birmingham Live report that although Steve Bruce wants to make the deal permanent, West Ham are keen to retain the maestro after his impressive season at Villa Park.
Snodgrass joined the Championship club on a season-long loan back in the summer of 2017, and has looked in great form, scoring seven goals for the Villans.
The report also states that the Hammers were keen to bring Snodgrass back early during the January window, but were unable to accomplish this due to there being no call-back clause in the deal.
Football Insider verdict:
There has been a change of management since Robert Snodgrass played at the London Stadium, and David Moyes seems to have gotten the best out of the players. Snodgrass could be another player to find success with Moyes in the Premier League, should the Hammers stay up. The Scotland international has shown glimpses of sheer class during his season in the Championship, which gives you reason to believe that he is capable of performing at the highest level. Steve Bruce’s push for promotion has been directly influenced by the play of the former Hull City man, and Villa’s current form suggests that Snodgrass could have been playing Premier League football anyway if he did stay with the Midlands club. If Moyes can unlock the Scot’s potential, the £7million price fee will seem like a good deal.
