Aston Villa are reportedly worried they have made a mistake regarding midfielder Morgan Sanson.
That’s according to an exclusive report from Football Insider, who have been informed from a club source that the Villa hierarchy feel they “haven’t done their homework” over the Frenchman.
Sanson difficult to manage
The 26-year-old has made eight appearances in total, picking up three yellow cards in just 224 minutes of Premier League action so far.
The report claims that the midfielder is very difficult to manage, with two of his former agents deciding to let him go.
Be honest, should Dean Smith be doing better with Aston Villa's squad?
No, he's about par
Transfer Tavern take
Smith was hoping Sanson would improve his midfield ranks, however, he’s struggled to really make his mark in the Midlands so far.
Valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, it’ll be interesting to see what Villa decide to do with Sanson, should these inside sources prove accurate.
Who knows, the club may even decide to cash in on him less than 12 months into his Villa Park career if they feel they have made a big mistake.
