According to reports from the French publication Made in Foot, it has emerged that Ligue 1 side Bastia has shown their interest in signing Aston Villa’s Jordan Amavi on loan.
Despite sustaining a season ending injury in October, Jordan Amavi is still renowned as one of the brightest young talents in European football.
Previous reports suggested that Premier League side Liverpool were the front runners for the 22 year old’s signature as they look to replace Jose Enrique.
However, reports are now suggesting that the former OCG Nice left back may prefer a move back to France rather than stay in England.
Aston Villa’s young French left back has been attracting attention from across Europe with French sides AS Monaco and Lyon looking to bring in the French left back.
The most recent French side linked with Jordan Amavi is Bastia. Aston Villa may be most inclined by Bastia’s interest as they are looking to sign Amavi on temporary basis through the form of a season long loan.
Aston Villa fans, what do you make of the news? Do you think Jordan Amavi’s departure is inevitable? Do you think the club should consider sending Villa’s prize assets out on loan rather than selling them permanently? Let us hear your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below!
