MetiNews.Com - The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international striker has joined Birmingham City for an undisclosed fee
Breaking News ! Scott Hogan's Aston Villa career has come to an end after the striker joined local rivals Birmingham City on a permanent basis. Hogan spent the second half of last season on loan at St Andrew's and Blues have now snapped him up for an undisclosed fee, on a four-year contract. The 28-year-old joined Villa for £12million from Brentford three years ago but struggled to make an impact. The Republic of Ireland spent time on loan at Sheffield United and Stoke City before Birmingham.

Villa fans have been reacting to the news of Hogan's departure. Here's what some had to say on Twitter... Joshavfc: I can't believe Blues actually paid for Hogan, I thought we'd have to pay them to do such a thing. Forever in our shadow. @TheHoofingRange: Scott Hogan tried his heart out to make it here. The reason he failed was Bruce. Never played tactics to support his game. Mr Thompson: Best of luck to Scott Hogan. Bruce signed him and used him as an impact substitute. Never really got a proper chance in a team that played to his strengths. His record at Brighton and Birmingham show he's more than capable.

But why do we never get a decent fee for a player (if the apparent 900k and paying off some of his wages is true)? He banged goals in for them. Surely we could have got 3m-6m. Never seems to happen for fees for us but always happens to us. Jason Price: People who know me will know I never rated Hogan, but i hope he does well and most importantly is happy. Sometimes I feel he was just never happy or comfortable here, and it's a shame because deep down there is a goalscorer in him. Dean Caffrey: Actually feel for Hogan, came in to #avfc, the team didn't play the way his style suited, then as soon as he started to settle into it got a few goals, Bruce got Grabban in to replace him, definitely the wrong signing at that time but Villa's recruitment at the time was a mess. Ash Skinner: Hogan of to Blues lol, glad to get rid of him. Anthony Williams: Thank god Hogan's gone. £12 million. 3 and half years. 7 goals. See ya!

. Hogan. Many were happy when we first signed him in the Champ. We overpaid, it didn't work out. Wish the lad all the best though. Gary Costello: You’ve got to laugh at all the bickering about Hogan on here. Imagine if Twitter was around in the 80s it would’ve been meltdown on here!Face with tears of joyThere was Hopkins who moved to Villa, Curbishley who we signed. Then Morley and Bremner to name but a few who crossed the City. @7500toHolte: Best of luck to Scott Hogan as he joins Blues on a 4-year deal for an undisclosed fee. Just don’t help them too much. Lise: Wish Scott Hogan all the best, it’s nice he’s found his level.

@This_Dosanjh: People really need to get off Hogan back. He tried his best since he moved to Villa... unfortunately it didnt work out for him. Hopefully he can get his confidence back just like Martinez at Arsenal. Got no ill feeling toward him but wish him best of luck at Birmingham. MG: I don't get the hate being aimed at Scott Hogan on here. It didn't work out with us, but it happens. I wish him all the best tbh, even though he's joined that lot in blue! Didier Socks: Shame it didn't work out for Hogan at #AVFC, same with McCormack. Proven Championship quality but never got going for either. Criticism unwarranted, all signings are a leap of faith.
