Gil, 23, moved to Villa Park in a reported £3.2million deal from Valencia in January 2015 but, after a relatively bright start to his career in England, he has failed to have a real impact.

Spanish website Plaza Deportivo have now claimed that La Liga pair Sevilla and Real Betis are weighing up moves for Gil, with the latter believed to be the more likely destination for the former Spain under-21 international.

Villa are unlikely to stand in Gil’s way should either Betis or Sevilla make an acceptable offer, although the report indicates they are not actively seeking a sale and would prefer a loan deal.
