Sarr, 24, looked all set to join the Villans as late as Sunday evening but a stumbling block surrounding the structure of the deal emerged at the final hurdle and looks to have all but ended any hopes of a transfer.
The Telegraph report that at this stage in the proceedings, any potential deal is ‘unlikely to be resurrected.’
News surrounding the break down in the transfer has brought with it mixed reaction from the claret and blue fanbase online with some seemingly relieved whereas others are anything but.
Here’s a snippet of what some have been saying.
@MrLukeCE: “Clubs an utter joke. Get in the bin.”
@ryanavfc7: “Not being funny. All you villa fans that wanted him, clearly you’ve not seen us play this season. An attacker from the championship is the last thing we need. I’m so glad we’re not wasting £25 million.”
@willsterdavies1: “What’s even more alarming is that we still don’t have all important ‘DM’ which presumably Gerrard & Co have known we needed. I allowed myself to be excited about Sarr, no doubt we get Bednarek now. Joy.”
@DG_Reformed: “club is a joke, we’re an actual disgrace”
@irish_villain: “The fans saying we shouldn’t be annoyed about this haven’t got a clue. Yes we should’ve been going for a cb or a cm. But we spent time on a winger & to not land the deal means its time wasted. Again another deal not happening and time wasted.”
@UpTheVilla_AVFC: “Ppl saying “we’re a joke”. Why? Cause we won’t be bullied against personal terms with a Championship player. I’d say we’re the opposite tbh. He should be jumping hoops to play for a club like us!!!!”
@davski13: “Blessing in disguise we don’t play with wingers so pointless”
