Arsenal May loan Chuba Akpom To Aston Villa

Published on: 25 January 2017

Aston Villa are among the Championship teams showing an interest in England U21 international Chuba Akpom.

The Birmingham Mail writes that Arsenal are prepared to loan out the young striker again to enable him get more playing opportunities after a back injury slowed down his progress.

If Akpom’s move to Aston Villa materializes, he will link up with his former teacher Steve Bruce, who coached him at Hull City last season.

The Hale End Academy product previously enjoyed loan spells with Brentford, Coventry City and Nottingham Forest.
