Aston Villa-owned Kilmarnock midfielder Aaron Tshibola has suggested that he wants to follow in the footsteps of John McGinn, as quoted by Sports Mole.

Tshibola, who joined Villa from Reading in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by Get Reading to be worth £5 million, has also suggested that he fancies getting into the Villans’ team.

The 23-year-old midfielder moved to Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership on loan from Villa in the Championship in England in the summer transfer window.

 

Scotland international midfielder McGinn moved to the Villans from Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in the summer transfer window.

SportsMole quotes Tshibola as saying: “Who knows what can happen in the future. I’m enjoying my football right now and I’m learning from the gaffer.

John McGinn is a great player and is a great example of what can happen if you do well in this league.

"He’s got rewarded with his move down the road but for myself, I just need to focus on myself and doing well here. I’ve still got two years left at Villa, so who knows what that can lead to.”

Future away from Villa Park?

Tshibola has struggled to make an impact at Villa since his move from Reading, and the midfielder is now in his third spell away from the Villans.

The DR Congo international midfielder spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest and Milton Keynes Dons in 2017, and he is doing quite well for Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership, having also played for Killie on loan during the second half of the 2017-18 campaign.

It is hard to see Tshibola breaking into the Villa first team next season, especially if Steve Bruce’s side end up getting promoted to the Premier League.
