Aston Villa have 7 players out on loan so it’s important to keep up to date on how they’ve been playing. But firstly, Paul Lambert wants to send Marc Albrighton on loan, I’ve already written an article regarding Albrighton’s possibly loan move to Derby but now I’ve got a few quotes from Paul Lambert regarding the matter.
“He missed nearly a whole season, he’s still really short (of match fitness).
“If something comes up and I think it’s right I’ll look at it. If I don’t he’ll stay here.
“He possibly needs a good run, he needs to stay injury free. He missed most of last year and even in pre-season he missed games.
“He needs that run where he does not break down. – Paul Lambert
It appears as though Albrighton is totally out of Lambert’s plans, but he needs to be playing and this may be his last year to impress the boss.
Meanwhile, Gary Gardner and Jordan Bowery will not be leaving on loan. Bowery can play out wide and Lambert want’s to have a full squad of 25 players. While Lambert wants Gardner to continue training and working with the first team.
Here are the players currently on loan:
