Why not just exceraise the buy back option and leave him at Villa for the rest of the season.I believe he's going to have suitors in the PL between those that come up and others that are in the lower-mid table.
I've read that the buyback is worth 25M this summer and then goes up to 30M. I think he has a place in the squad once Dinho is done after next season.
Therefore, I believe it might be good business to buy him back and loan him to a lower level PL team for further experience. Maybe a team like Leeds with Biesla would be an option.
i haven’t seen much of him but if he’s good enough to start for Brazil he has to be good.
i think we sold him for £18m so getting him back now for another £7m looks like good business to me.
