Should Aston Villa consider loan move for Liverpool's Adam Bogdan after Lovre Kalinic's move fell through?

Villa Park Outside

The Hungarian is reportedly hoping to seal a loan move away from Anfield during this window.

With Lovre Kalinic's move to Aston Villa now seemingly off the table after The Telegraph reported that work permit issues meant that the £4.9m move fell through, Remi Garde may wish to consider attempting to bring Liverpool goalkeeper Adam Bogdan in on loan until the end of the season.

The Sun reports that the 28-year-old wishes to leave Anfield during this window - having been dropped following mistakes against Watford and Exeter - in an attempt to stake a claim to be Hungary's number one for this summer's European Championships. 

Although Mark Bunn has done relatively well since replacing former number one Brad Guzan, Garde's pursuit of Kalinic appears to suggest that he is still keen to sign a new goalkeeper.

And while Bogdan's recent form is unlikely to fill Villa fans with much confidence, he has often proved that he is an excellent shot-stopper, and proved during his eight-year spell with Bolton that he can be relied upon to put in a series of consistent performances that give the defence in front of him plenty of belief. 

His stand-out performance since his move to the Reds came on his debut in the Capital One Cup tie with Carlisle, when he saved three penalties in the shootout to help the side avoid an upset. 

While the Liverpool man is probably not the long-term answer to Villa's goalkeeping situaton, a loan move would see the Villains gain a solid stopper, and would allow for the majority of the £4.9m they nearly spent on Kalinic to be invested on more pressing concerns in other areas of the pitch. 

And with many keen to write Bogdan off after a couple of mistakes, he would head to Villa Park extremely determined to prove himself by helping the club as they try to pull themselves towards safety.
