Rumor: Carles Gil (Aston Villa) to either Villarreal or Real Sociedad

I'm a fan.

Tim Sherwood has apparently decided Carles Gil is "too lightweight", and is looking to move him, with Villarreal and Real Sociedad both interested.  That's according to a couple of UK media reports.

Gil came up in the Valencia system, spent two years on loan with Elche and was a key part of their promotion club in 2012-13.  He's an attacking midfielder, can play on either side.  The Villans spent something like €3-4m on him so would presumably like to recover some or all of that.

Gil is Valencia born-and-bred, so might enjoy a return to the Comunitat Valenciana, a short train ride from his home city.  We'll see.
