Report: Aston Villa talent 'set to leave' on loan this summer; nine clubs are interested
Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis is attracting plenty of interest from sides in the Championship this summer.
According to the Athletic, the 23-year-old talent is on the radar for nine clubs in the second tier. As per the report, Davis looks ‘set to leave’ Villa this summer on loan.
The striker only made three starts in all competitions for Villa last season. Ollie Watkins easily cemented himself as Dean Smith’s first-choice striker following his move to the club from Brentford last year.
Davis made 18 appearances in total for Villa last campaign, with the striker scoring just two goals and assisting a further two in all competitions.
The attacker is yet to nail down a first-team spot with Smith’s side since breaking through in the 2016/17 season. And a loan spell playing regular football could be needed for the centre-forward.
Whilst Davis has made 85 senior appearances for Villa, the striker has only managed six goals in all competitions.
With Watkins the club’s first-choice attacker and rumours circulating that another forward could be signed this summer, the 23-year-old talent could do with a spell out on loan.
Indeed, it is encouraging that multiple clubs are eager on acquiring the striker’s services on loan.
Davis has played two seasons of his career in the Championship, and with Premier League minutes now under his belt, the Stevenage-born attacker could impress in the second-tier with the right club.
