The curious case of Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis.

23-year-old Davis certainly has his supporters in the fanbase and he did a great job under former gaffer Steve Bruce when we needed him to lead the line when others were out injured, and he’s often put in a good shift during Dean Smith’s spell in charge.

He’s a likeable lad and his contract renewals show the club continue to see something in him, and his strengths are obvious. However, so is the glaring weakness – finishing.

28 starts, 57 substitute appearances but only six goals and even his fiercest critics admit that rather than playing a bit part from the bench, he needs a spell in the Championship to get regular game time and hopefully get that confidence boost from having a purple patch in front of goal – and it seems he may well possibly get that chance in 2021/22 if reports are right.

The Athletic via the Birmingham Mail have claimed that as many as nine Championship clubs are said to have an interest in the player and with Wesley returning to fitness following his lengthy injury, we are now open to getting Davis out for games whilst we see what the Brazilian can do this term as back up to Ollie Watkins.

This would be a no brainer for me, Davis has his part to play in some games, but we also don’t really play to his strengths and he becomes a far more saleable asset if he can get a good run of goals under his belt as plenty don’t feel he has a future with us, particularly as we look to strengthen further this summer and in coming transfer windows.

Although the original report doesn’t name check a particular club, we can all look through the Championship table to see those he would suit and those you feel he’d definitely improve.
