Premier League side Aston Villa are not prepared to allow Real Betis target Carles Gil to leave Villa Park anytime soon, according to reports from HITC.
Gil has struggled for regular first team football at Villa this season and it is clear to see that the Spanish attacking midfielder does not feature in the plans of manager Remi Garde.
As a result, it was widely believed that Gil would be leaving Villa during the January transfer window and La Liga side Real Betis were said to be keen on signing the former Valencia youngster.
However according to reports from HITC, it has been claimed that Villa are not ready to allow Gil to leave the club in January.
Despite not giving Gil too many minutes on the pitch, Garde is said to be keen on using the 23-year old more prominently as the season progresses and the Frenchman wants to hold on to the playmaker till at least the end of the current campaign.
