It would be safe to say Andre Moreira has not had the best six months at Aston Villa this season.
The goalkeeper arrived at Villa Park in the summer on a loan switch from Atletico Madrid and has only featured a handful of times for the Villans.
However, he has not made a single appearance under Dean Smith and it is claimed he could soon be making his return to Spain.
With the addition of Lovre Kalinic this January, and the return of Jed Steer from his loan at Charlton Athletic earlier in the month, things did not look too good for the Portuguese ‘keeper.
It does not really come as a surprise to see Moreira have his loan deal potentially cancelled by Aston Villa imminently.
Although Orjan Nyland has been ruled out with injury for the rest of the season, Kalinic’s arrival would have likely ruined any chance he may have had.
Smith does not appear to have any time for some of the loan deals Steve Bruce made, with Yannick Bolaise also having his temporary deal cancelled recently.
