Aston Villa will consider a potential loan exit for Keinan Davis this month to a Championship side, but only on one condition.
Davis is currently the club’s main back-up option to starting striker Ollie Watkins. The 22-year-old leaving would therefore make little sense at present.
However, if another striker at Aston Villa can prove his fitness before the end of the month, Davis can leave.
The other player in question is Wesley Moraes, the club’s somewhat forgotten Brazilian striker.
Wesley, who joined Aston Villa in the summer of 2019 for a fee in the region of £22 million, has been out of action since last January when he picked up a serious knee injury. The 24-year-old is back in training and will hope to find his way back into the Aston Villa fold after 12 months out.
According to the Daily Mail, that will allow Davis an exit.
Plenty of Championship sides are believed to be keen on the Aston Villa frontman.
WalesOnline have suggested that Swansea City are interested in Davis whilst other Championship sides have also been mentioned as possible destinations for the reliable attacker.
However, if Wesley has yet to recover by the end of the month, then it seems very likely that Davis will remain the back-up option for Watkins for the remainder of the season.
