Aston Villa man sees a nightmare ending as he takes home on loan

Wesley Moraes’ nightmare period at Club Brugge is over after the Aston Villa striker agreed a transfer to the Brazilian Internacional.

The 25-year-old returned to his former club last summer, two years after switching to Villa Park. But his time back in Belgium has been nothing short of a disaster. The striker has only made a handful of appearances, including only one start. However, Internacional have agreed to take on the striker after his loan deal was terminated with Bruges.

According to The athletic, Wesley has “agreed on a new loan scheme back in his home country and is traveling back to complete the switch”.

Wesley have scored six goals in 26 games for Villa. He still has two and a half years left on his Villa Park contract.

Steven Gerrard will be hoping Wesley can reach some of the form that made the club spend £ 22m on him in the summer of 2019.

Wesley’s career was put on hold in January 2020 when he suffered serious cruciate ligament injury following a tackle from Burnley’s Ben Mee.

It took the player 480 days before returning to West Brom in a 2-2 draw last April. And Wesley has revealed that even though his career was over.

“When you can come back after such an injury, you think: now no one can stop me,” he told me KW.BE In November.

“For a long time, I thought my career was over.

“It was a really bad injury at a time when I was better than ever.

“After that happened, I cried every day for 20 days.”

Wesley is not the only player expected to leave this month. Bertrand Traore, Anwar El Ghazi and Trezeguet all look ripe for transfers, with the latter couple available for loan.

Gerrard has said he is looking for quality and not quantity in January, and if the trio moves out, it will make room in his budget.

Axel Tuanzebe’s exit from the club also means Aston Villa is able to take another loan.

‘It makes no sense to keep players if they are not in your plans’

Pundit Noel Whelan believes Villa could be ready to run and trade in the market.

“It could raise money, so absolutely,” Whelan said Football Insider.

“Some clubs do not always have the luxury of keeping these players on big contracts, while they also go out and buy another big player.

“Sometimes you have to cut one loose if you want another one in. Such is the world just with most clubs and their financial situation right now.

“It’s no use keeping players if they are not in your plans. If you can move them on with loan-to-buy deals and get the salary out of the club, then do it.

“It works both ways, Villa could then use the money to bring in players – perhaps also on a loan-to-buy basis.”
