Aston Villa have a few players out on loan this season, so here’s the next update of the 2017/18 campaign.
With the January transfer window now shut – here’s the latest state of play with our players elsewhere and where they will be as the season draws to a close.
22 year old Tshibola headed out to League One MK Dons before the first ball of 2017/18 was kicked and during his time at Stadium: MK he took in 15 starting appearances with a further showing from the substitutes bench. He scored his only goal for the club in their EFL Trophy clash with Brighton’s Under 23 side.
His loan was cut short two weeks into the month of November and January saw a move to Scottish side Kilmarnock. He made his debut for them as a substitute in the victory over Celtic.
24 year old Gil headed back to Deportivo La Coruna over the summer for a second season long loan spell, but this time it was reported there is a buy clause inserted into the deal. Having recovered from a reasonably long term injury, he returned to full fitness and action in November and now has ten appearances to his name this campaign.
23 year old Jordan Amavi finally completed a loan move out to Marseille, with a buy clause in the deal which has now been enacted. He was classed as on loan until January however, so with the window open we say our goodbyes. In the first half of the campaign he made 19 starts and one substitute showing. This is the last time he’ll appear on the list.
22 year old goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini is now in his second season of a loan out with Atalanta after an apparent 18 month spell was agreed back in January 2017. So far in 2017/18 he has made five appearances for the side.
Gary Gardner headed for Oakwell and Barnsley. So far he has made 13 starting appearances for them with a further showing from the bench.
Ross McCormack headed back to Villa in January, and he leaves Melbourne FC with 14 starts, three showings from the bench and a return of 14 goals.
Youngster Harry McKirdy also headed out to League Two side Crewe Alexandra in late January, making his debut and scoring a goal in their game against Wycombe Wanderers as a substitute. Since then he’s made a further substitute showing and a start.
Ritchie De Laet:
Fullback Ritchie de Laet headed back to Belgium in late January, making a move to Royal Antwerp. He has already made two starting appearances for them.
Tommy Elphick also got his wish for greater game time with a late January switch to Reading. He made his debut against Burton Albion as a substitute and has now already made his first start.
Eash Suliman made a late deadline move out to Grimsby Town, but he’s yet to make his debut for them.
And that’s your lot unless I’ve forgot somebody again.
