Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola is looking for a way out of Villa Park. According to The Daily Mail’s deadline day blog [11:01], Tshibola is trying to negotiate an Aston Villa exit.
However, a possible move to Sunderland is no longer on the table. The Black Cats reportedly wanted to sign the 24-year-old but he will not be moving to The Stadium of Light.
Tshibola has struggled at Aston Villa since his 2016 move from Reading. In three years, he has only managed 10 appearances for the Villans with one goal to his name.
The DR Congo international has had three loan spells away from the West Midlands. He has spent time with Nottingham Forest, Milton Keynes Dons and, most recently, Kilmarnock.
Tshibola was a hit for Kilmarnock last season, playing 43 games for the Scottish Premiership club. A return to Rugby Park could be on the cards and the Scottish deadline is not today – unlike the English deadline.
If Tshibola fails to move to a Championship club by 5 PM, he will have to move to Scotland, Europe or League One and below. There are options for the former England youth midfielder, who operates in holding midfield. But with a bleak future at Aston Villa, Tshibola is looking to leave.
