'He's clearly a talent': Danny Mills defends Nketiah ahead of his reported loan move to Villa
- Nketiah is set to leave Arsenal on loan this month.
- Eddie could succeed at Villa, according to the pundit.
- Mills says the game is all about opinions.
Former England international Danny Mills believes Eddie Nketiah could easily succeed at Aston Villa. The 20-year-old is likely to leave Arsenal on loan until the end of the season with Dean Smith's side being among the clubs interested.
"Well he's clearly a talent and everybody can see that," Danny Mills said.
"But for some reason, it didn't happen for him at Leeds and Bielsa decided he wasn't showing enough in games, he wasn't showing enough in training and that's all it is.
"If every single manager likes the same type of player or the same type of character, then it'll be a very boring game. It'll be very dull and everyone would play the same, results would be predictable week in week out.
"The game is all about opinions, and this is where a manager earns his money, by perhaps taking a player it hasn't worked out for and giving them confidence and turning their career around.
"And in January, that's what all managers are looking to do."
Nketiah's loan spell at Leeds was cut short as the striker was never the first-choice option for Marcelo Bielsa. His playing time was reduced to short cameos from the bench. The striker has now plenty of options to consider.
