Aston Villa have to pay £12 million to sign Robert Snodgrass on a permanent basis, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The experienced winger joined the Championship side on loan in the summer from Premier League side West Ham United and has impressed for the Villa Park club. The 30-year-old has scored 7 goals in 37 games for Villa this season and will be crucial for them in them in getting into the Play-Offs.

Villa boss Steve Bruce will no doubt be keen on signing him on a permanent basis. However, his future at Villa Park could depend on whether they are promoted to the Premier League or not.

Bruce knows Snodgrass well from their time at Hull City together. It was the former Manchester United defender who brought the Scotsman to the KCOM Stadium from Norwich City and he was a key part of the Tigers’ squad who won the Championship Play-Offs against Sheffield Wednesday in 2016.

Snodgrass’ form in the Premier League last season for Hull City earned him a £10 million move to West Ham United in January. However, he struggled to make an impact with the Hammers but was never really given a chance.

He has proven on loan this season at Aston Villa that he is still a top quality player at this level and their fans will hope that he signs for them on a permanent basis.
