Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn has been a hit amongst fans since joining from Scottish side Hibernian in the summer transfer window, and his form has seen him linked with a move to Leicester City.
During the last summer transfer window when Brendan Rodgers was the manager of Celtic, he was keen to sign Aston Villa star midfielder John McGinn, before the Scot chose to join Villa instead. And last week it was reported by the Mirror that he could look to revive his interest in the midfielder this summer.
However, their hopes of signing McGinn seem to have taken a hit – much to the relief of Aston Villa fans. Speaking to the Aston Villa Twitter page as part of their “Rewind, Fast Forward” series, the midfielder revealed that he hopes to be playing in the Premier League with Aston Villa in five years time.
When asked about what he will be doing in five years time, McGinn said:
“Hopefully still at Aston Villa playing in the Premier League, we all know this club belongs in the top flight. Hopefully, I’ll be involved in it.”
McGinn’s words will be music to the ears of Villa fans, after his strong start to his career at Villa Park. The 24-year-old has played 31 games in all competitions for the club, netting two goals and providing eight assists.
He has missed the last two Championship games through suspension for picking up 10 yellow cards but could be set to return for their derby day clash with Birmingham City.
