Preston North End, Huddersfield Town and QPR are monitoring the situation of Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis ahead of the January transfer window, with the forward potentially set to be available.
Davis was subject of a lot of speculation over his short-term future during the summer transfer window with both Preston and Derby County having been reportedly interested in making a loan move for the forward.
However, Aston Villa decided to keep hold of the 22-year-old given they had an injury to Wesley Moraes, per Football Insider.
However, Wesley is close to making a return to fitness and it is now being reported that Villa are willing to allow him to make a temporary move away in January to get some regular game time under his belt.
Davis has seen his game time limited during the first half of the campaign thanks to the form of summer signing Ollie Watkins. So, a move away will be his best chance to play matches.
Quiz: Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Preston North End appearances?
It has now emerged that Preston are set to reignite their interest in the 22-year-old, with Huddersfield and QPR also monitoring the situation, per Football Insider.
It is thought that all three clubs believe that Davis has the right physical attributes to become a major performer for them in the second half of the campaign.
Davis is clearly a player with a lot of qualities and potential to offer, and he demonstrated during his time playing in the Championship with Aston Villa a few seasons ago that he can be a handful at that level. Therefore, the 22-year-old on a short-term loan deal appears to be a sensible addition for all three of Preston, Huddersfield and QPR.
Preston were interested in the summer, so it is no surprise to see the Lilywhites back in the race for his signature given he has now been made available by Aston Villa.
Alex Neil could do with another option up front who can come in and finish of some chances that have been missed by them in the final third, so Davis could be worth a go for North End.
As for QPR and Huddersfield, both clubs could do with some added forward depth, and for the Terriers in particular he could offer more of a physical option upfront than they currently have available to them. It will therefore be interesting to see which club Villa choose to send the 220year-old out on loan to in January.
