Aston Villa have a few players out on loan this season, so here’s the third update of the 2017/18 campaign.
With the closure of the summer transfer window – here’s the latest state of play with our players elsewhere after three months of action.
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 so far he has taken in 15 starting appearances with a further showing from the substitutes bench. He scored his first goal for the club in their EFL Trophy clash with Brighton’s Under 23 side.
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. I am unable to find any season statistics from him for 2017/18 so far, and the best I can tell is he’s working his way back to fitness following an injury.
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’s still classed as on loan until January however. He has made ten starts for the Ligue 1 side so far this season with a further showing from the substitutes bench.
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 two appearances for the side.
21 year old youngster Kevin Toner will build on previous loan experience at Bradford, Walsall and Kidderminster as he’s with Stevenage this season. So far this campaign he has made four starting appearances with a further four from the substitutes bench.
Late on during deadline day, goalkeeper Matija Sarkic made the loan switch out to Wigan Athletic. He has now made his debut, starting games for the DW Stadium outfit in matches against Middlesbrough and Crawley Town. There is no clean sheet yet, but both games ended in victory.
Gary Gardner also made a late deadline day move out of the club on loan, heading for Oakwell and Barnsley. So far he has made one starting appearance for them.
Ross McCormack headed out to Melbourne FC on a loan spell at the end of September. He’s made five starts for the Australian side so far, scoring three times.
And that’s your lot unless I’ve forgot somebody again.
