West Ham United are yet to make a decision on Robert Snodgrass’ future at the club, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail.

The media outlet claim that Aston Villa would like to bring the Scotland international back to Villa Park on a season-long loan deal but will need to wait and see what the Hammers decide to do.

The winger, who became a fans favourite during his spell with the Championship club, is thought to have been given a second chance at the London Stadium, as it is understood that he has started to mend bridges with West Ham.

He was used as a scapegoat by the club’s owners when things were not going right for them on the pitch and Slaven Bilic did not appear to really know what to do with the 30-year-old at times.

New West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini appears to have given Snodgrass a new lease of life at the Irons, after a disappointing couple of seasons following his switch from Hull City.

The Scot has played more minutes than anybody else in their pre-season friendlies and has also been given the chance to impress in his favoured position, on the right-hand side of an attacking trio.

In fact, it is believed that he has impressed the new West Ham manager so much, that he could be in contention to start their Premier League opener when they meet Liverpool at Anfield in two weeks time.

However, there is still a week before the transfer window shuts and a lot can happen in seven days, including a possible deal between Aston Villa and West Ham for Snodgrass, as the Hammers may find other targets to bring in before it closes.
