Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson could make a move to Aston Villa this summer, to help resurrect his career following the emergence of Tom Cleverley, according to The Daily Mail.

Despite being tipped for bid things at Old Trafford, Gibson has seen rising star Tom Cleverley jump ahead of him in the pecking order to replace Paul Scholes in the United set up.

And according to reports, Gibson could be a target for Aston Villa, who are short of numbers in central midfielder following the release of Nigel Reo-Coker and the United man is seen a a prime target.


The Republic of Ireland international was due to make a move to Sunderland earlier this summer, but talks fell through as United pair Wes Brown and John O'Shea made the switch to the Stadium of Light.

Gibson made 22 United appearances last season, scoring twice in the defeat of Scunthorpe United and Schalke.
