Ex-Aston Villa midfielder Glenn Whelan has a new club, after he signed a deal with Hearts in the Scottish Premiership.

The midfielder became a quick fan favourite at Aston Villa, before leaving on the expiration of his contract at the club last season.

Plenty of Villa fans have been wishing the midfielder luck at his new club on Twitter.

Villa Views believes that the midfielder could do no worse than move to a club called Hearts.

Daniel is forever in debt to Whelan, for missing that penalty against Preston that all but secured the sacking of Steve Bruce.

@Best_Mate_1874 wishes the midfielder all the best at his new side.

@AVFCIrishLions also gave their best to Glenn at his new side.

All the best to Glenn at his new side.

Whelan was a big part of recent Villa sides, despite his age.

The Irish international will certainly make a big impact in Scotland, especially after his exploits with Villa.

Oh, and his penalty did get Steve Bruce sacked, so he will certainly be favourite with Villa fans for many years to come.

Were Villa right to let Whelan go?
