Marc Albrighton is set to join newly promoted Premier League team Leicester.
Albrighton received a four year deal. The 24 year old was released from Aston Villa partly because the team wasn't able to afford his wages and partly due to his injury history. Albrighton looked healthy late in the season and was impressive making runs down the flank for Villa. He should be one of Leicester's best players next season and will be a good fantasy option if Leicester can provide him with a good target man. May 30 - 5:13 PM

Aston Villa have released winger Marc Albrighton after 16 years at the club.

Albrighton has been with Aston Villa since age eight and graduated from the Villa academy. He has 101 appearances and nine goals for the club. The move is somewhat surprising. Albrighton struggled early in his career with injuries and went on a month long loan at Wigan this year to get back his fitness and confidence. The loan seemed to have worked as Albrighton looked impressive after returning and started nine matches for Paul Lambert. The 24 year old has enough quality to play in the Premier League next season if teams can trust him to remain healthy. Leicester seems the favorites to land him at the moment and are reportedly offering up to £30,000-plus per week for his services.

Marc Albrighton remains a doubt for Aston Villa's match against Tottenham on Sunday.

Albrighton missed the last match through a groin issue and it seems the muscle is bothering him enough to keep him sidelined. He is a young player with tons of upside and I don't see Aston Villa risking him in a meaningless game. Albrighton will likely be a big part of what Villa do next season and he could be a good fantasy option if he solidifies a starting spot. Villa's most likely front five against Spurs this weekend are El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Weimann, and Agbonlahor. Proceed with caution, as there is a possibility they go with an experimental youth squad.

Marc Albrighton missed Aston Villa's match against Manchester City due to a groin injury.

Albrighton picked up a knock against Hull City over the weekend that caused him to miss out today. Albrighton has had a very interesting season, missing time through a long term injury, going on loan to Wigan Athletic, and then establishing himself as a first team starter for the past few weeks. If Albrighton can remain healthy, he can be a great player for Aston Villa next season. Karim El Ahmadi started in his place and could very well start agains on Sunday but he is not a fantasy option.

Marc Albrighton has returned to Aston Villa after a month long loan at Wigan and came on as a substitute against Sunderland.

Albrighton has struggled with injuries and was offloaded to Wigan to get some match time under his belt. He is a quality player and could contribute to Aston Villa during the busy month of December. Paul Lambert is ready to use a variety of players in the next few weeks so don't be surprised to see some less often used players on the pitch.

Aston Villa's Marc Albrighton is headed to Wigan Athletic on a 28-day loan.

Yes, you read that correctly. It's indeed only a 28-day loan. Albrighton has a history of injuries and his fitness is questionable since he's fallen out of favour at Aston Villa so I'm assuming Wigan want to test him out before committing for longer. There is an option that Wigan pick him up permanently during the January window and I'm sure that they can arrange a longer loan if they want it.
