Aston Villa are reportedly considering a loan deal for out-of-favour Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho in the winter transfer window in January.
The West Midlands club are desperately in need of options in attack with Jonathan Kodjia and Keinan Davis, who is currently injured, as back up to first-choice striker Wesley Moraes as things stand.
Villa aren’t expected to be busy in January after their huge spending in the summer following their promotion from the Championship.
According to Birmingham Mail reports, Dean Smith is looking at a loan deal for Iheanacho if he becomes available in January.
Interestingly, the 23-year-old Nigerian international hugged the headlines over the weekend, grabbing a goal and an assist in Leicester’s 2-1 victory over Everton in his first Premier League appearance of the season to emerge the man-of-the-match.
The former Man City forward has netted 13 goals in 66 games for the Foxes since his switch from the Citizens in 2017, however, most of his minutes have come as a substitute.
