Aston Villa have canceled Antonio Luna’s contract with Aston Villa and has now signed a two-year deal with Spanish side Eibar. Luna signed for Aston Villa in 2013 for a fee of £1.5 million from Sevilla. He started his Villa career brightly by scoring in his debut in Villa’s 3-1 win against Arsenal on the first day of the season. Since that game, his performances dipped significantly and ultimately lost his starting spot to Bertrand who was brought in on loan for the remaining of the season.
Luna went out on loan to Verona last season where he struggled for game time, and eventually moved to Spezia a Serie B team for the second half of the season. Not a great loan spell in Italy. Perhaps it’s best for Luna who became known as Tony Moon among Villa fans because he clearly isn’t good enough for the Premier League and he struggled to stop many wingers. I can’t necessarily blame Luna for his time here, he just wasn’t good enough and perhaps wasn’t the best of buys by Paul Lambert.
