West Ham United midfielder Robert Snodgrass has emerged as a target for Aston Villa.

The Daily Mail is reporting that Aston Villa want to sign Robert Snodgrass on a loan deal with an option to buy included.

After an unimpressive start to life in East London, West Ham are supposedly ready to listen to offers for the 29-year-old.

Snodgrass only joined the Irons in January after leaving Hull City.

However, he failed to replicate his Hull form at West Ham and was used sparingly by Slaven Bilic.

The Scotland international only managed fifteen matches for West Ham with eight of those coming from the bench.

Aston Villa’s financial restrictions are preventing them from purchasing Robert Snodgrass permanently now.

However, they have been seeking a loan move and want to agree an option to buy provision in that deal.

West Ham would have to consider this deal.

While they would rather sell Robert Snodgrass, this is a chance to get his wages off the books and bring in a better player who might fit the style of play.

When Michail Antonio, Marko Arnautovic, Andre Ayew and Manuel Lanzini are all fit, Snodgrass could struggle to get any playing time and a move to the Championship might be best for his career’s sake.
