Aston Villa loanee Tom Carroll posts heartfelt message after injury

Tom Carroll has sent a heartfelt message to Aston Villa supporters on Twitter after being forced to undergo surgery to correct a long-standing his problem – and urged Villa to gain promotion.

The 26-year-old joined Villa on deadline day in the January transfer window. Dean Smith wanted to beef up his midfield options and have the former Tottenham ball player gave the Midlands outfit another option.

However, the 17-time England Under-21 international managed just two appearances for Villa before the problem flared up again. He played 16 minutes of the 0-0 draw with Reading, and 19 of the 4-0 win over Derby.

Carroll took to Twitter as he returned to his parent club to begin rehabilitation, apologising to Villa fans for the decision to go under the knife. He also spoke about Villa’s hope of gaining promotion.

 

TBR’s view

What a pointless signing. On deadline day, there must have been somewhat of an inkling that Carroll was suffering with a hip problem and that game time would be limited.

There is no doubting that Carroll is a top player when fully fit. He has shown that in his 94 Premier League appearances throughout his career.

If the midfielder can get back to full fitness, then Villa should have a look at him again. But to sign him in January was a waste of resources and time.
