Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn is a target for West Ham. According to The Daily Mail, West Ham and Leicester City want Aston Villa star McGinn.
But Aston Villa are determined to keep McGinn, who only joined from Hibernian last summer. And the West Midlands club will offer him a contract extension to secure his long-term future until 2022 and beyond.
West Ham are still eyeing reinforcements in midfield despite signing Pablo Fornals. And McGinn was thoroughly impressive in the Championship last season.
John McGinn: Aston Villa hero
After scoring seven goals and providing 10 assists, the Scotland international quickly became a fan favourite at Villa Park. And he sealed his place in Aston Villa folklore with his final game of the 2018/19 season.
In the Championship play-off final at Wembley, McGinn scored Aston Villa’s winner against Derby County. This sealed their return to the Premier League.
With Aston Villa back in the Premier League, fans feel they do not need to sell McGinn. Supporters have taken to Twitter after it emerged Leicester and West Ham want the 24-year-old.
Here are some of the best tweets from Aston Villa fans giving their opinion on this latest transfer rumour.
Why on Earth would that remotely be a move he would consider? 🤔🤨

If it’s a Man City or Liverpool you’d say monitor away but you’ll have to dig real deep-but West Ham or Leicester?? It’d be touch and go if we would sell to them even if we were still in the champ..Now? No chance. Not a selling club #avfc
