Chelsea Midfielder Joins Aston Villa On Loan

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has joined fellow Premier League side Aston Villa on loan for the remainder of this season.

His loan deal to the former European champions was confirmed by the Blues on Wednesday morning.

Ross Barkley has decided to move away from Chelsea after the array of talents signed by the club left him on the fringes.

The 26-year-old would now be hoping to make his mark on an Aston Villa side that has started the season in sparkling form.

Aston Villa have won two from two league games and are currently in the top four despite playing a game lesser than 16 other teams.

Ross Barkley could make his debut for Aston Villa in the upcoming league game at home to champions Liverpool.

The Carabao Cup fourth round clash at home to Stoke City on Thursday night might come too soon for him.

He scored 11 goals in 86 appearances for Chelsea with the last of his goals coming last week during the Carabao Cup fourth round win over second tier team Barnsley.

Ross Barkley joined Chelsea from Everton in January 2018 in a £15m deal and has struggled to consistently hold a permanent spot in the first team.

He played under three managers namely Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard.
