Carles Gil’s plea to stay at Deportivo La Coruña after the end of the season, and hisAston Villa loan, may have sounded good to fans, but the local media hasn’t made it so romantic.
Last week, when speaking of his future, Gil was quoted as saying: “The first thing is to talk to Aston Villa. Here I am very happy, but now the priority is to achieve the goal of salvation. I hope I can stay.”
But in an article from El Gol Digital this weekend, they claim this statement couldn’t come at a more inopportune time for Deportivo.
That’s because the club are worried about paying their debts with the treasury, which would make things harder for them to invest in permanent signings next summer. Although there’s no official clause for the player to be transfer, the Spanish media believes that Deportivo could find a deal with Aston Villa if they wanted to.
Gil has a contract with Aston Villa until 2019. He joined the La Liga side on loan last July, and has managed to make 14 appearances for them this season. He’s considered very useful by the club because of his versatility.
It would be no surprise if Deportivo attempt to get Aston Villa to agree to another loan.
