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.

  • Stupid sell him if he doesn’t want to play for us .i’m not impressed so far we’ve got some old defender in terry looking at another old player for midfield no no.1 goalie we need its fast the championship and all these old players hes buying there legs ha

  • Agree totally. FFP is going to cripple us if we’re not careful. Unlucky with Amavi and he showed good application and character at Telford to his credit. BUT, by my reckoning, we now have 13+ midfield players just for a start!! Not enough work has been do
