Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis could make a move to Turkish side Besiktas, according to a latest report via Sport Witness.
The young attacker was claimed to have signed a new contract earlier this season which would come to an end next summer, although that claim is yet to be confirmed by the Midlands club. Should that extension not be active, Davis will then be available on a free transfer at the end of the season, and that has prompted Besiktas to show interest in a potential move.
Turkish daily Posta reported via Sport Witness that manager Sergen Yalcin is a big fan of the Villa youngster and that a summer transfer is on his agenda.
The 22-year-old has found playing time hard to come by at Villa Park this season, appearing just eight times in the Premier League with all of those coming from the substitutes’ bench. Davis developed through Villa’s academy before making his first team debut in the 2017 FA Cup defeat to Tottenham.
Whether or not Davis can secure some more playing time when the 2019/20 season returns is debatable, and that leaves the door potentially open up for a summer move.
Would it be the best move for him? Only he will know whether or not it is wise to take the gamble of leaving the club for a move elsewhere.
Moving to Besiktas could certainly be a step up, given that he would likely gain experience of European competition, and he may be tempted to make the move given his lack of game-time at Villa Park.
Do you think Villa should let Davis leave the club? Let us know in the comments section below…
