Morgan Sanson to make a return to France?

Morgan Sanson

Morgan Sanson arrived at Aston Villa in the 2020 winter transfer window. Sanson was to be the first choice central midfielder however has failed to make a mark. Consistent lackluster performances threatened his place in the Villa side.

Morgan Sanson arrived from Marseilles to be a core part of the Aston Villa club. The club was in desperate need of a holding midfielder and Sanson fit the part perfectly. However, Sanson was not able to replicate his form at Villa which did not do him any favors. Villa dropped him from the first team soon after.

Sanson has made a total of 6 starts in the Premier League this season. He has failed to make any substantial claims to his position in these appearances.

Steven Gerrard explains why Sanson remains sidelined

Steven Gerrard had earlier explained that Sanson was not given opportunities as his fellow teammates John McGinn and Jacob Ramsey were in better form.

“I certainly agree with the supporters that said his cameo [against Brighton] was positive, we were really happy with the job that he did when he came onto the pitch, he made a big part in helping us get over the line, he used the ball really well and played tough for the team, Morgan is training well, he’s been the ultimate professional. I’m certainly aware that he wants more game time so he needs to just continue to do what he’s doing.

Having said that, we moved John into more of a six position and brought Morgan on and it certainly looked well at the time. We’re aware that Morgan can certainly be a help to us between now and the end of the season.”

However as the season ends, It appears Sanson is not part of Steven Gerrard’s plans for Aston Villa. According to reports, Marseille have shown interests in resigning their former player. This could prove beneficial for both parties as Villa can offload his wages and get a hefty sum while Sanson could get crucial game time. Valued at 10m, Villa could push for 15m as Sanson has 3 more years left in his contract.
