Aston Villa have announced this evening that midfielder Carles Gil has returned to Deportivo La Coruna on a season long loan spell.
He will rejoin former West Bromwich Albion head coach Pepe Mel for a second season having been with them in the 2016/17 campaign.
Having joined Villa back in January 2015 from Valencia, he has made a total of 34 appearances, scoring three times for us and on statistics I can find, last term he made a total of 17 starts for Deportivo, with a further seven showings from the bench, returning one goal.
Given Gil had made it clear he wanted a move, shame this wasn’t a permanent deal as that would’ve suited us best but you’d think he’s played his last game for us.
