Aston Villa have a few players out on loan this season, so here’s the next update of the 2016/17 campaign.
With the closure of the transfer window this summer, clubs loaning players had to get them over the line by 11pm on Wednesday August 31 as the Emergency loan window has now been scrapped and with the January window upon on us some deals have already expired and others have been re-arranged.
Here’s the latest state of play with our players elsewhere.
Villa made a very early decision on Riccardo Calder – or should I say Doncaster Rovers did after he impressed with them last season, as they came in for him mid July.
From March onwards Calder was at the Keepmoat Stadium and he made seven starts with five substitute showings, and having returned to them early for a half season loan that expired on January 2 this summer, he has now added a further nine starts to his name, with 11 substitute appearance. He has also picked up one goal – his maiden senior goal in the EFL Trophy and picked up a yellow card.
With his deal expiring this January, the 20 year old is now back with us.
The next player to head out was 18 year old prospect Easah Suliman. The former England Under 17 skipper made the trip to Whaddon Road on a half season loan, that also expired in January, for a spell with promoted Cheltenham Town.
He has made his maiden Football League debut this year, making a total of seven starts for the club so far, and five substitute appearance – with a return of three yellows.
Again he is now back with us but that deal ended owing to injury.
Niall Mason also made the move to Doncaster Rovers in early August on a deal that expired in early January.
Like Calder, he made his Football League debut in their game against Accrington Stanley on the opening day of the season, and so far he’s notched up 21 starting appearances with a further showing from the substitutes bench. He’s also helped himself to two yellow cards.
His deal was extended this month until the end of the campaign.
Henry Cowans was the next youngster to head out on loan this summer, and he headed to the Lamex Stadium for a spell with Stevenage until January 7.
The now 21 year old made his senior debut in his first loan spell out in their EFL Trophy game against Leyton Orient. To date he has 14 starting appearances with four showings from the substitutes bench. He has four yellow cards to his name.
His deal was extended this month until the end of the season.
Kevin Toner has was also out on loan, to near neighbours Walsall following his spell with Kidderminster Harriers last year. On stats I can find he made six starting appearances for the Aggborough side last season, and heading out late on in August he has already made his starting debut for Walsall in their game against Bury.
He made 20 starting appearances, picking up two yellow cards.
He is now back with us.
Joining Cowans at Stevenage also was Harry McKirdy who completed his loan spell out on deadline day – and it expired on January 7 also.
He made his debut for them against Exeter City in late September, and has six substitute showings to his name, with seven starts, along with a return of two goals – in their EFL Trophy clash against Brighton’s Under 23 side, and League Two clash against Mansfield.
His deal came to an end and he’s back with us owing to injury.
In loan news for seniors which are full campaign loans, Jordan Veretout’s trip to St-Etienne has seen him make 20 starting appearances, with two substitute showings in Ligue 1 so far with a return of two goals.
Carlos Sanchez at Fiorentina has made 12 starts, with ten substitute showings also – scoring once.
Whilst Carles Gil has six starting appearances for Deportivo, with two substitute appearances based on details I can find.
Heading out on fresh deals this month were Aly Cissokho who is yet to debut for Olympiakos but he’s with them until the end of the season now.
Pierluigi Gollini is also waiting for his debut following his loan out to Atalanta
And that’s your lot unless I’ve forgot somebody again.
