Amongst the many transfer decisions Aston Villa manager Dean Smith needs to make, one has been finalised, with 20-year-old attacking midfielder Callum O’Hare moving to Carlisle United on loan for the remainder of the season, it has been confirmed on the club website.
O’Hare is yet to feature under Smith at Villa and so has made the move to Carlisle, who are performing well in League Two, to gain more first team experience.
So is Carlisle a good platform for O’Hare to develop, away from Aston Villa?
“I think it is.
“I was surprised to see Villa let him drop into League Two but stylistically, there is no better place for him.
“Carlisle have been playing some brilliant attacking football and that is what’s O’Hare needs on a regular basis.”
“I think so.
“Carlisle are flying in League Two at the minute, and are playing some fantastic football that could help get the best out of the player.
“A loan move away could be beneficial for his career.”
“I’m not so sure it is.
“I’d have preferred to see him in League One, but mainly because my team are challenging Carlisle for a top three spot!
“Seriously, League Two can make or break a player, but Tyler Walker is proving a success at Mansfield, so why not O’Hare at Brunton Park?”
