Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane agrees loan deal with Championship club

Conor Hourihane

Hourihane is expected to leave Aston Villa on loan.

Conor Hourihane is set to leave Aston Villa this month with reports claiming the 29-year-old has agreed on a loan move to Swansea City.

Hourihane’s playing time has been limited for Villa in the Premier League this season. The midfielder has made just four appearances for the Birmingham club.

The Ireland international, 29, has fallen down the pecking order, with space in midfield limited. Jack Grealish, John McGinn, Ross Barkley and Douglas Costa are all ahead of him.

While Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest expressed interest in Hourihane, The Athletic reports that he has agreed to join Swansea on a deal until the end of the season.

Swansea hope that Hourihane can help their bid for Premier League promotion with the Welsh side currently sitting second in the Championship table, four points behind leaders Norwich City.

Hourihane joined Villa from Barnsley in January 2017 for £1.5m and helped the club win promotion to the Premier League in 2019.

The Cork-native has scored 29 goals in 150 games for Villa.
