Aston Villa defender Bjorn Engels is no longer in Dean Smith’s plans, with a summer exit now looking likely.
Antwerp, who tried to sign the Belgian in January, are thought to be at the front of the queue for the centre-back.
Engels’ pricey Villa stint
That works out at £379,000 per appearance, and it seems as if his disappointing stay in England will come to an end over the next few months.
Should Villa sell Engels this summer?
Transfer Tavern take
He hasn’t made a Premier League appearance this season, with Smith mainly using Tyrone Mings and Ezri Konsa as a central defensive partnership.
Kortney Hause is another centre-back who appears to be above Engels in the pecking order, and Villa’s task now is to try and recoup as much of the £7.2m they paid for the Belgian two years ago as they can.
