Aston Villa are set to sanction the departure of Carles Gil during the January transfer window, according to reports from AS.
Gil joined Aston Villa from Valencia during the January transfer window last season amid much hype and the Spaniard had initially managed to win over the Villa supporters with a couple of promising performances.
However, Gil has struggled to bring about any consistency during his time at Villa so far and has rarely been used by new manager Remi Garde in recent times.
Due to lack of regular minutes on the pitch as well as struggles in adaptation, it is believed that Gil wants a move back to Spain and his wish might well be granted in January as Real Betis are looking to swoop in for the 23-year old – according to AS.
Betis manager Pepe Mel is looking to strengthen the left side of his attack and has reportedly eyed up a six month loan move for Gil, with a view to make the transfer permanent at the end of the season.
