Benjamin Siegrist is a permanent target for League Two outfit Wycombe Wanderers this summer, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The 24-year old Swiss custodian moved to Villa Park as a teenager in 2012 after leaving FC Basel in his homeland, though never made a first-team appearance for the club.
He was farmed out on loan to the likes of Burton Albion, Solihull Moors and Cambridge United, though moved to Adams Park back in March.
He had to wait a while to make his debut in Buckinghamshire, though his performance in last weekend’s defeat to Accrington Stanley certainly impressed Chairboys chief Gareth Ainsworth.
‘I think he was outstanding and we have got a potential gem in Benjamin Siegrist now’, stated the former QPR midfielder.
‘It is all about this club and whether we can get players like that. I will be working hard in the summer [to do that].
‘Benji has been here for seven or eight weeks and hasn’t played a game.
‘Saturday was a chance to look at a keeper who I think is good enough to play in League Two and I was very impressed with what I saw.’
Wycombe travel to high flying Oxford this weekend in the final game of the season, looking to derail their hosts chances of dramatically breaking into the top two.
Is the Swiss stopper the right of sort player to put between the posts in a demanding division like League Two?
