According to reports from The AthleticFive clubs have shown no interest in signing Aston Villa forward Keinan Davis on loan in January.
The 22-year-old has managed 47 minutes in four substitute appearances in 15 Premier League games so far, and is in dire need of a series of regular matches this year to continue his progress.
The report claims that five clubs are interested in signing Davis to a short-term contract.
Preston North End are longtime fans, while Stoke City, Derby County, Huddersfield Town, and Swansea City are also in the mix for their signature.
SL View: Should Davis go on loan?
Davis is highly rated by the club. He graduated from the Villa academy and signed a new four-year contract in September, showing that the club has full confidence in his abilities.
However, he’s behind Ollie Watkins and Wesley in the pecking order. With Wesley injured, he is currently Watkins’ backup forward.
Dean Smith, Villa’s boss, is currently not prepared to let him go on loan. Davis is expected to get a few minutes in the FA Cup clash against Liverpool, but could struggle again to gain playing time once Wesley, Ross Barkley and Trezeguet are back in top form after their injuries.
At the moment, it seems unlikely that Davis will move away from Villa Park. However, towards the end of the transfer window, your situation may change.
Athletic assures that Villa is evaluating attacking options and could sign another striker, either on loan or permanently. If that happened, Davis could be allowed to go on loan.
