Express and Star journalist Luke Hatfield believes that a loan move is most likely for Aston Villa’s Wesley this summer.
The 24-year-old missed much of last season through injury, making his return to first-team action in Villa’s 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion in April.
Wesley was an unused substitute in Aston Villa’s opening Premier League match of the season against Watford, and Hatfield believes that a loan move will be most likely for the striker this summer.
“Yeah, I think a loan move is probably the most likely just because Villa at the time when they signed him, he was a club-record signing wasn’t he, and he was looking to finally get into gear before picking up what Dean Smith said was one of the worst injuries he’s ever seen, so yeah, I think a season on loan,” Hatfield told Transfer Tavern.
A source told Football Insider that manager Dean Smith was willing to offload both Anwar El Ghazi and Wesley, with the report stating that clubs in Belgium, Turkey and Holland were interested in Wesley.
Villa have been active in the transfer market this summer with incomings as Ashley Young, Axel Tuanzebe, Emi Buendia, Leon Bailey, Danny Ings and Caleb Chukwuemeka have all arrived at Villa Park.
