Some Aston Villa supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on Andre Green following confirmation of his free transfer move to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.
Green was available on a free after leaving Villa in the summer.
The 22-year-old was linked with the Owls back in October. The Sun on Sunday (4 October; Page 59) claimed both Wednesday and QPR were keen ahead of the summer transfer deadline.
A deal then, however, never materialised and Green was left waiting until January.
Now, Wednesday have managed to secure his signature and some Villa supporters have taken to Twitter with several wishing him luck at Hillsborough.
Good to see you back in the game @AndreGreen_ , best of luck at Wednesday, prove Villa wrong to move you on.
All the best

Great news. He’s a very good player and fully deserves another shot.

Always will remember the late equaliser against the blades, that should endear him to the Wednesday fans

Green has plenty of Championship experience. He helped Villa to promotion, while also having loan spells at Preston North End and Charlton Athletic.
Green is predominantly a winger. He is direct, likes to run at defenders and utilise his pace. But the former Villa man can also operate centrally behind a centre-forward.
The former England U20 international will provide Wednesday with another outlet.
The Owls have endured a tough campaign so far. Sitting just outside the relegation zone, Wednesday have lacked goals and creativity which has hindered their progress.
Both Garry Monk and Tony Pulis have been dismissed. Now, seeking their third manager, the Owls must get it right while any incoming boss will be eager to strengthen the squad.
After Green, Wednesday’s next top priority must be a physically strong centre-forward.
