Chelsea fans have reacted to Ross Barkley's loan move to Aston Villa on social media. 

The 26-year-old has headed to Villa Park for the 2020/21 season, joining up with Dean Smith and former Blue John Terry. 

However following Barkley's move, it ends Villa's interest in Ruben Loftus-Cheek due to Premier League loan rules only allowing one loan player from each club.


Here's how Blues supporters reacted on social media:

I've been pleased with Barkley during his time at Chelsea. I think he still had the expectations of a upcoming superstar that people were holding him to. But take a look at his price tag... as a 13M incoming player, Barkley has been a very useful squad member.

He's been nothing but professional considering his previous role at Everton where he was a go-to guy.

I think he'll do well at Villa, and I look forward to watching him there.

At the price Chelsea paid for him, it was a no brainier. Surprised to see him go and not Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Would’ve much rather had Barkley in the squad, while Loftus-Cheek went on loan for game time.
