Betis want Villa’s Gil

Real Betis are ready to offer Carles Gil a way out of relegated Aston Villa but other La Liga teams are interested as well.

Estadio Deportivo reports interest from Benito Villamarin, spurred by sporting director Miguel Torrecilla, who tried to take Gil to his previous club Celta Vigo.

Villa don’t appear to want to let the ex-Valencia midfielder move on, however, despite Gil rarely playing as the Villans were relegated from the Premier League, and he has a contract in the Midlands until 2019.

Betis would prefer a loan deal with the option for a permanent transfer though Deportivo La Coruna, Celta and Sevilla are watching as well.
