Aston Villa manager admits that midfielder Morgan Sanson is frustrated with his lack of game time at Villa Park. Now, manager Steven Gerrard has admitted that Villa will not stand in Sanson’s way should he look to exit the club. The midfielder has not featured in any of the two matches of the season. Moreover, Turkish club Besiktas have expressed n interest in signing the player.
The 28-year-old player has started only three Premier League matches in the 2021/22 season. Moreover, the player has not featured in any game for Aston Villa since April 2, 2022. He was benched in six games out of the eight games that Villa have played since then. Since his arrival from Marseille on a £16m fee, he has started only seven games. Injuries are the main cause of these dismal figures for Morgan Sanson. He has suffered a hamstring and knee injury in his time at Aston Villa. Due to this, his time in the Aston Villa colors can come to an abrupt end.
Besiktas are interested in signing Sanson on a loan deal from Aston Villa which would carry a permanent buy deal in it. The Turkish giants are currently in contact with Aston Villa for a possible deal for Sanson. Moreover, with three years left on his deal with Southampton, it seems unlikely that he will remain at the club with the current game time that is available to him.
Villa manager confirms he will not block the move for Sanson
Steven Gerrard has confirmed that he will not stand in Morgan Sanson’s way if he wishes to exit the club. Gerrard said:
“Morgan’s been very professional. He’s been calm, he’s been training well but, at the same time, he’s frustrated with his game time. I respect that, I understand that. So, if something lands for Morgan that he wants to pursue, we won’t stand in his way. At the same time, he’s training well and is pushing to be back in the frame. The window’s still open, there’s still 10-11 days. So, there’s a possibility we could look slightly different come the end of the window.”
