Aston Villa consider recalling Louie Barry from Stockport County loan

Aston Villa midfielder Louie Barry joined Stockport County on loan during the summer transfer window but could return in January.

Aston Villa are considering the possibility of bringing Louie Barry back to the club so that they can send him on loan to another club at a higher level. A report from TEAMtalk claims that the West Midlands club and Unai Emery want the 20-year-old to compete at a higher level.

Louie Barry has been a key player for Stockport County since joining the club, scoring five goals and picking up one assist in eight appearances across all competitions.

The 20-year-old is highly rated at the West Midlands club, and he has a big future ahead of him. It is evident that he has adapted to League Two with ease and he needs a more challenging league in order to continue his development.

It will be interesting to see if any other club is willing to sign the player on loan in January. The 20-year-old needs to play regularly in order to continue his development and fulfil his tremendous potential. Barry is expected to develop into an important first-team player for Aston Villa in the coming seasons.

The highly talented midfielder will be hoping to establish himself as an important first-team player for Unai Emery but he needs to improve further in order to hold down a regular starting spot at Villa Park.

Aston Villa could certainly use a creative midfielder like him and it remains to be seen whether he can force his way into Unai Emery’s first-team plans next season. For now, a loan move to the Championship could be ideal for the talented young midfielder. He would get to compete at a higher level and it could accelerate his development.

He will be hoping to return to Aston Villa as a better player next season and give himself a better chance of holding down a first-team berth. Aston Villa have put together a talented squad, and Barry will have to work hard in order to get his opportunities at the West Midlands club.
