In a recent report, The Birmingham Mail has claimed that Aston Villa youngster Jacob Ramsey could leave on loan in January. It is understood that a whole host of EFL Championship clubs are eyeing a six-month loan move for the Villans starlet next month (via The Birmingham Mail).
Ramsey’s Impressive Rise At Villa Park
Ramsey came through the youth ranks of Aston Villa and went out on loan to play for Doncaster at the start of this calendar year. Since coming back from his loan spell, the talented teenager has caught the eye by breaking into the Midlands outfit’s senior squad this term.
The Birmingham-born prospect has managed to gain some valuable experience with Dean Smith’s senior team this season. However, Ramsey still has a lot to learn before he is ready to feature in the Premier League week in week out. He has been involved in four matches for the West Midlands side this term, picking up one assist in all competitions.
The 19-year-old has shown some glimpses of his true potential but he has not been able to compete with the likes of Jack Grealish, John McGinn and Ross Barkley for a place in Villa’s starting XI. Hence, a short-term loan move to another club this winter could be a welcome opportunity for the English whizkid as he needs more playing time if he wants to become a better player in the years to come.
What Does The English Midfielder Offer On The Pitch?
Ramsey has decent pace in his locker and can make some promising runs with the ball in the opposition half. He has got great balance and agility which can make him a joy to watch at the centre of the park. The one-time England Under-20 international primarily operates as a free-flowing attacking midfielder but can also play in a more reserved role in midfield or operate as a winger on the left flank. However, he is still quite raw and would need time to fulfil his potential at Villa Park.
Ramsey Going Out On Loan In January: Good Move For Both Parties?
Letting Ramsey go out on loan during the winter transfer period could be the way to go for the Villans as he can benefit from getting more game time at the senior level. He might even come back as a better version of himself which will help his chances of getting into Smith’s first XI next season.
With all things considered, Ramsey’s temporary departure in January will be a good move for both the player and the club. The West Midlands giants are currently well-stocked in the midfield department, so they can afford to lose Ramsey on loan next month.
