Scott Hogan moved from Brentford to Aston Villa on deadline day of the last transfer window, for a fee that reportedly could rise to around the £12m. However, after just four appearances for his new club, Hogan is due a spell on the injury sidelines say Essex Live.

It was a sparkling 14 goals in the opening five months of the season from former Rochdale striker Hogan that saw a tug-o-war between Villa and Premier League West Ham, the Villans eventually getting their man.

In what Essex Live are terming a likely “extended spell on the sidelines,” Villa will be without their much-vaunted goalscorer, something that the club have said will be determined tomorrow (Thursday) after the results are known from scans taken at some point today.

For his part Bruce has said that the injury is a “nasty one,” also telling The Express that: “the injury to Scott Hogan doesn’t look good. He has gone up for a header and he has turned his ankle over.” After the injury, Hogan was applauded from the field on a stretcher by both Aston Villa and Newcastle United supporters.

The news itself that Hogan could be out for a while has met with some commentary on Twitter from Villa fans.

Scott Hogan to be sidelined – Villa fans react on Twitter

This Villa fan is looking outside of the club for answers, a reaching out to Nottingham Forest maybe?

Villa fan Jack is obviously a little worried that Hogan and others are missing.

Twitter user and Villa fan the ginger one is looking at a realistic scenario with this tweet.

Meanwhile, amongst a certain sense of criticism over Villa players’ responses to the injury Hogan suffered, Villa fan AJS has a slight dig at another Villa player.

The anger is building already in this Villa fan.

Betting site Marathonbet also say it with a gif.

The question is though, will Villa miss Scott Hogan should he be out for the remainder of their 2016/17 Sky Bet championship campaign?
