Reliable Aston Villa reporter Ashley Preece has admitted that there is a Plan B for Louie Barry in January.
Barry was one of a number of academy players who were sent out on loan in the summer.
He joined League One side Ipswich Town, however, things haven’t exactly gone to plan for the centre-forward, who is awaiting his first goal under Paul Cook.
Should Villa recall Barry in January?
No, let him stay with Ipswich
Preece was asked by one Villa fan in a Q&A for Birmingham Live on Wednesday about Barry and if the club were planning on recalling the forward in the winter window.
He revealed that Villa are monitoring Barry closely, with a possible plan to end his Ipswich stay before loaning him to a League Two side in the New Year where he would feature more regularly from the off.
Villa fans react
“It was an absolutely terrible loan move.”
“Knew this would be the case. Not worked out at Ipswich.”
“Jedinak needs to send him to Swindon”
“Hope so, he’s losing important development minutes on the pitch atm. I say bring him home and loan him to Walsall”
“Would be sensible. Clearly working well for Kesler Hayden, and even the National League was clearly a good move for Archer last season. If Ipswich don’t want to play ball then there’ll be much better spots for him elsewhere.”
“Get him to Swindon”
