Ross Barkley close to signing for Aston Villa

2024/05/20 15:51

Luton Town midfielder Ross Barkley is close to returning to Villa Park according to reports.

Journalist Ben Fisher of The Guardian has stated that the former Everton and Chelsea midfielder is close to signing for Champions League-bound Aston Villa for a 'modest fee'. The West Midlands club are believed to want to strengthen the depth of their squad ahead of their European campaign next season.

Barkley returned to the Premier League after a season with Nice in Ligue 1 when he signed for recently-promoted Luton Town last summer.

However with the Hatters' relegation and Barkley's desire to stay in the Premier League, the 30-year-old could be set to return to his former club.

Barkley was previously on loan at Villa from Chelsea during the 2020/21 season where he featured 24 times and scored 3 goals for the Lions.

As a football fan, I am thrilled to hear that Ross Barkley could potentially be returning to Villa Park. He was a key player for us last season and I believe he will only add more quality and depth to our squad. Can't wait to see him back in the claret and blue!

As a Luton fan, I'm sad to see Barkley go but I understand his desire to stay in the Premier League. Wishing him all the best at Villa, he's a class player.

As a football fan, I'm feeling quite disappointed to hear about this potential move for Barkley. It's clear that he wants to stay in the Premier League, but I was hoping he would find a new home with a different club. Hopefully he can make an impact for Villa, but it's hard not to feel a sense of disillusionment with this news.

Disappointing to see Barkley leaving Luton so soon after joining. Was hoping he would stick around and help them fight for promotion back to the Premier League. But I guess players always want to play at the highest level. Good luck to him at Villa.
