Aston Villa have been linked with a loan move for Irish international Darron Gibson.

The midfielder has struggled to play for Everton so far this season, making just five appearances in all competitions.

With the former Manchester United in need of game-time to try and secure a place in Ireland's Euro 2016 squad and few opportunities to come, Roberto Martinez has indicated that he is willing to let Gibson and Aiden McGeady out on loan.

According to Daniel McDonnell of the Irish Independent and Off The Ball, both relegation zone occupiers Aston Villa and Sunderland are eyeing a deal for Gibson.
