Aston Villa

Former Villa man: Current Villan could join Wolves

Paul Robinson has suggested that Aston Villa star John McGinn could join Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of the season.

“Without a doubt. McGinn has been out injured but he has had a great season” he told Football Insider. when asked about the midfielder’s future.

“He has made a name for himself at international level as well and if they do go down he will “Wolves is a different story now,”  added Robertson.

“The way that Nuno Espirito Santo has turned that club into serious European contenders in a short space of time. Wolves are back. It is an attractive proposition for any player.”

McGinn has been one of the standout performers for Dean Smith’s side this season.

He has been linked with a move away from Villa Park and will likely leave if the Midlands club are relegated this season.

The Scotland international has not featured in competitive action since December 21 after he suffered an ankle injury whilst playing against Southampton.

Wolves could have a good chance of signing McGinn if they make their interest known.

Nuno Espirito Santo has transformed the Molineux club into a formidable Premier League side.

They are performing well in the Europa League this season and are also in with a chance to qualify for the Champions League next term.

The chance to play for a thriving side and experience European football is something that will appeal to McGinn.

The 25-year-old joined Villa from Hibernian during the summer of 2018.

He adapted to life with the Midlands outfit quickly and helped them to win promotion to the Premier League during the 2018/19 season, winning the club’s Player of the Year award in the process.

McGinn has also proven to be an adept player at Premier League level.

The 21-times capped Scotland international is one of the best talents that his country has produced during recent years along with the likes of Andy Robertson and Kieran Tierney.

Villa will have little chance of keeping him if they are relegated.
