Yacouba Sylla has left Aston Villa for French club Rennes on a four-year contract.
Sylla hasn't played much for Aston Villa and played on loan at Turkish Club Kayseri Erciyesspor last season. The midfielder hasn't really been good enough to play in the Premier League but he can probably earn plenty of playing time in France. It's a good move for all involved. Thu, Jun 25, 2015 12:40:00 PM

Aston Villa's Yacouba Sylla will likely join Turkish club Kayseri Erciyesspor on a season-long loan this season.

Sylla was out of favour at Aston Villa last season and found himself on the bench at most times. Sylla only started six matches and wasn't impressive for the Claret and Blue. The 23 year old will hope to improve his form in Turkey so he can one day established himself as an option for Aston Villa but those days are far from now. He will not be a fantasy option in the near future.
