Villa midfielder may be set to move sightseeing tour to Turkey

Yacouba Sylla looks ready for a loan move to Turkish club Kayseri Erciyesspor. Have fun sightseeing!

Earlier this year, midfielder Yacouba Sylla bemoaned his lack of playing time with Aston Villa. At the time, he said that he was disappointed in his spell in England because "even if I do get to visit some wonderful stadiums and that life here is different than in France, I am not happy because I am not playing. I am not here on tourism."

Well, there may be good news for the Mali international midfielder, as reports have him set to move to Turkish club Kayseri Erciyesspor on a loan move for next season. While there he would have the opportunity to visit several more wonderful stadia as well as a bevy of Turkish historical sites. The sightseeing tour will just move from one side of Europe to the other.

For Villa fans, this news will likely come as a welcome relief. In his half season with the club after he joined in 2013, Sylla showed a lot of potential. In the 2013-14 season, however, he was often an actively bad player and could possibly have been Villa's worst performer of the season. His contract with Villa runs through the 2015-16 season, so a loan move could be a good idea. It would give him the chance to prove his relevance again while relieving Villa of some of his wages.

As of now, I've written Sylla off as a lost cause, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong. Hopefully this loan spell, if it happens, accomplishes that.
