Aston Villa are on the verge of loaning 20-year-old goalkeeper Viljami Sinisalo to League One side Burton Albion, with Steven Gerrard giving the youngster permission to sign for the EFL club.
According to the Birmingham MailThe Finland youth international has been allowed to leave training ahead of a loan spell at Burton, where the goalkeeper will sign a one-year loan deal with the Brewers, with Villa set to feature heavily in the goalkeeping position for next year.
As well as Emi Martinez, who continues to impress as No. 1 for Villa. 1, Gerrard has secured the signing of Sweden international Robin Olsen from AS Roma on a permanent deal, with the duo already traveling to Australia with the Villains first-team for pre-season.
With Jed Steer also on Villa’s books, the decision to bring Sinisalo on loan for the season was a logical decision for the Birmingham-based side as Burton are now on the verge of signing the youngster for the year in what will be a very beneficial loan move could be the goalkeeper perspective.
Sinisalo played for Scottish champions Ayr United last season, with the Finnish youngster making 29 appearances for the Honest Men. The keeper has now won a move to Burton in League One where the keeper can make real name for himself.
Last season Gavin Bazunu impressed for League One’s Portsmouth, prompting Southampton to sign the talent from Manchester City for a reported £12m and a similar result could befall Sinisalo if he impresses for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side.
Sinisalo made a good decision by agreeing to sign for Burton
At this stage in his career, playing football regularly is everything for a young player and Sinisalo’s move to Burton is a good move for the talented goalkeeper who could one day become a top player in one of Europe’s biggest leagues.
Indeed League One is a great division to learn the ups and downs of being a goalkeeper and Sinisalo playing for a club like Burton under a manager like Hasselbaink will be a great learning experience for the Villa talent who is next to Villa Park could return this season as a contender for the No. 2 shirt.
