For Carles Gil, a return to Aston Villa isn’t on the cards.
The 24-year-old has spent the entire season on loan at Deportivo La Coruña this season, wanting to avoid playing Championship football at Villa Park, and he’s found himself a new home.
Despite suffering a handful of injuries, the forward has enjoyed a relatively successful campaign, picking up four assists in 18 league appearances, and the prospect of returning to England isn’t one he wants to think of particularly.
In a lengthy interview with La Voz de Galicia, Gil expressed his desire to wave goodbye to the Midlands and stay in his home country for the foreseeable future.
He said: “Of course, I see a possibility of me continuing here. I don’t know. I think that, in the end, with a bit of luck, Aston Villa and I will reach the same conclusion. It’s possible that me leaving will suit them. If that’s the case, then it will be much easier.
“I don’t get bored of saying it, because it’s true, that I’m really happy here. Deportivo has given me a lot of confidence, at the beginning and throughout the season. We’ll see how everything unfolds.”
With his loan coming to an end in the next couple of months, Gil knows the talks with Steve Bruce and co. will be of utmost importance for his career, especially with Premier League football at least one more season away for Aston Villa.
Admitting his agent is already working on trying to get things done, the Villa loanee also knows he is going to receive offers from other clubs.
It could be a busy summer for Carles Gil, but also for the Villains, who are going to have to deal with a few loan players situations.
Like Jordan Veretout, for example.
