'I don’t see myself having a future': Villa defender Enda Stevens looking to leave

Aston Villa's Enda Stevens is expecting to leave the club soon.

Aston Villa defender Enda Stevens says that he doesn't feel he has a future at the club anymore. 

Stevens moved to the Midlands side in 2012, but most his first-team action has been achieved through loan moves. 

And the Irish youth international, who is currently on a temporary move to League One side Doncaster Rovers, has now decided that it will be best for him to move on. 

"I don’t really see myself having a future at Aston Villa," he admitted to the Doncaster Free Press.

“I’m in the last year of my deal. I’m here [at Doncaster] to play games and play well, and hopefully something will come of it.”

Stevens joined Villa from Shamrock Rovers after he caught the eye in the League of Ireland, but the move hasn't worked out.

The 24-year-old has made just nine appearances across three and a half seasons with the Premier League outfit and has largely been a disappointment.

He looks a capable lower league player, though, and his main focus will be on helping Doncaster to mount a promotion charge this season.

Stevens' original loan is due to end in January, but he is hopeful of the deal being extended after he has forced his way into the first-team at the Keepmoat Stadium. 

Paul Dickov's team are currently three points away from the League One playoff spaces, but they do have a game in hand on some teams in the division.
