Bruce Eyes Reunion With West Ham Star: A Deal That Can Get Aston Villa Closer To Promotion?

According to Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa are vying for the services of West Ham United attacker Robert Snodgrass. The 30-year-old spent last season on loan at Villa Park and made quite an impression. As a result, head coach Steve Bruce is reportedly keen on bringing him back to Villa Park as he looks to lead Aston Villa to Premier League promotion in the upcoming season.

In fact, the 57-year-old had previously worked with Snodgrass during their time together at Hull City, which has understandably played a key role in Aston Villa’s pursuit of the West Ham forward.

A near ever-present figure for the Villans last season, Snodgrass initially moved to West Ham in a €12m move from Hull City. However, since arriving at London, the 30-year-old has featured in only 15 matches before being shipped off to Aston Villa on a season-long loan deal last summer.

That being said, he seemed to have found his old groove at Villa Park, largely thanks to Steve Bruce, who is well aware of his qualities in attack. Thus, a move back to Aston Villa is a no-brainer, not just for the player, but for the club as well. And it was evident when the fans gave him a warm welcome during their pre-season friendly against West Ham earlier this summer.

Steve Bruce currently lack options in the attacking department, especially in wider positions. Although Albert Adomah arguably enjoyed the best season of his career last term, the 29-year-old’s ability to replicate last season’s form is still questioned while star player Jack Grealish has been extensively linked with a move out of the club.

In fact, Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur are keen on securing his services this summer in an attempt to bolster their attacking department. This could come as a huge blow for Aston Villa, who already lack depth in attacking positions, thus, accentuating the need of someone like Snodgrass next season.

The 30-year-old, as mentioned earlier, was a revelation at Villa Park in this past season and has already made himself quite a favourite among the fans. His mobility on the wings coupled with his knack for scoring goals could be useful for the Championship giants in the forthcoming campaign.

As a matter of fact, his tally of eight goals and 13 assists last season almost fired Aston Villa into Premier League promotion and head coach Steve Bruce will be hoping he can replicate his performances as the Villans aim to get back among the English elites.
