Aston Villa have confirmed on their official website about the departure of Orjan Nyland on Monday night. It is understood that both the Norwegian keeper and the Villans have agreed to mutually terminate his contract at Villa Park (via avfc.co.uk).
Nyland’s Uneventful Spell With The Villans
Since joining from FC Ingolstadt in the summer of 2018, the Volda-born custodian has gone on to make 36 appearances for Dean Smith’s side, shipping in 53 goals while securing nine clean sheets in all competitions. It seems like he has kept a shutout every four games during his time in English football which is quite an impressive feat for a rotational keeper.
However, Nyland is not the best distributor of the ball as evident from his pass success rate of 52.6% in the 2019-20 Premier League campaign (stats via whoscored). At the moment, Emiliano Martínez has established himself as Villa’s first-choice goalkeeper while both Tom Heaton and Jed Steer fill in as his backups in Smith’s match-day squad.
The 28-time Norwegian international will benefit from sealing a move to a club where he will be guaranteed more game time as his career at the West Midlands club had come to a standstill.
What Are The Norwegian Goalie’s Best Attributes?
Nyland doesn’t take too many chances when clearing his lines at the back. He also boasts decent reflexes which help him pull off a few important stops for his team. The Norwegian custodian can make some quick dives but tends to commit himself too early that has sometimes left him vulnerable against the top goal-scorers in the Premier League. He is not the best handler of the ball which explains why the Villans have decided to release him on Monday.
Aston Villa Part Ways With Nyland On Mutual Consent: Good Riddance By Smith?
The West Midlands outfit’s decision to part ways with Nyland could turn out to be a sensible decision by Smith as the player will benefit from seeking a new club in search of greener pastures. The Villans have also cut off some of the deadwood from their squad which might help them be a more financially sustainable club in the future.
All in all, Nyland’s exit seems like good riddance by Aston Villa. The Norwegian is also better of weighing his future options rather than sitting helplessly on the sidelines at Villa Park this season. At 30, he still has plenty of time to turn his career around for the better in the years to come.
