Gary Gardner’s prospective move to the club on loan has caused a stir among the fanbase.

The player is having his medical at the club, and he is due to sign on the dotted line at some point today.

As you can imagine, fans on Twitter were very much split on whether the 26-year-old should be welcomed at St Andrew’s:

Some don’t want him to join us:

It’s a difficult one for me. From a purely footballing perspective, I get where Garry Monk is coming from. We are limited to loan deals and free transfer signings, and we need to strengthen the centre of midfield in light of David Davis’s injury.

From that point of view, making a move for Gardner is a sensible choice considering the limited options he has available to him. However, the midfielder’s long association with Villa does make it more difficult. He won’t be welcome with open arms by all fans as the tweets demonstrate above.
