Aston Villa have confirmed on their official website that Wesley Moraes has sealed a loan move to Club Brugge. It is understood that the Villans striker will now spend the entire 2021-22 campaign on loan with his former club in Belgium.
Wesley’s Frustrating Spell In English Football So Far
Wesley has endured an injury-ravaged spell at Villa Park thus far as he missed almost the whole of last season due to a cruciate ligament rupture and later, a serious knee injury. He only went on to make three appearances for the West Midlands team in the Premier League but failed to register a goal or an assist in the previous campaign.
Things are just not going to plan for the Brazilian striker in English football, so it makes sense for him to go out on loan and play for his old club at Brugge so that he can gain some confidence back and return as a much-improved version of himself next summer.
Currently, Dean Smith has already got Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins as his first-team forwards with Keinan Davis filling in as their back-up on the bench. Thus, Wesley is surplus to requirements at Villa Park which could be why the Villans have decided to loan him out this month. At 24, there is still plenty of time for the talented frontman to turn his fortunes around for the better in the future.
Wesley Seals Loan Move To Club Brugge: Good Move For Everyone Involved?
Wesley can use his strong 1.91m frame to dominate the opposition defenders in the air and can hold the ball up quite well for his teammates with his back to goal. However, frequent injuries have disrupted his career in England, so only time will tell whether the Brazilian striker can regain his best form at Villa Park.
For now, Wesley should concentrate on proving his fitness at Club Brugge and get some goals under his belt. The Villans would hope that he can turn his career around so that they can use him at some capacity next season. Otherwise, they would be wise to cash in on him if they receive a decent offer for his services after his loan spell in Belgium.
With all things considered, Wesley’s recent loan switch will be a good move for everyone involved as long as the player can stay fit and play regularly at Brugge during the course of this season.
