According to the news agency PA, Swansea and Bournemouth are trying to loan Keinan Davis from Aston Villa to improve their promotion opportunities.
Should they sell Josh King or Dominic Solanke in the transfer window, Davis is high on Bournemouth’s list. King, who is expected to leave the Cherries after playing only eight times this season without scoring a goal, is said to be interested in Villa, West Brom and Newcastle. As Bournemouth sit third in the Sky Bet Championship and pursue an immediate return to the Premier League, Solanke has scored nine times in 23 matches. After Michael Obafemi of Southampton sustained a severe muscle injury during training, Swansea, who are in second position, also turned their attention to Davis. The striker was supposed to go on loan to the Liberty Stadium, but is now out of action, causing the Swans, who are also interested in Max Watters from Crawley, to reconsider their plans. This season, Davis played seven times for Villa, scoring one goal, but only featured in the Carabao Cup. Since making his debut in 2017, he has scored five goals in 74 appearances. If Wesley moves on with his recovery, the 22-year-old academic graduate could fall further down the rankings. The striker has been out with a serious knee injury for a year, but next week he is scheduled to practice again with the team.
