Doctor: £25m+ Celtic star likely to pass medical as Aston Villa eye January transfer swoop

We’re delighted to welcome injury expert Dr Rajpal Brar as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the injury situation at Aston Villa...

Celtic midfielder and Aston Villa and West Ham target Matt O’Riley is unlikely to have any issues passing his medical this month, according to Dr Rajpal Brar.

After evaluating the Englishman’s fitness over the past two seasons, the injury expert concludes that he is in perfect condition and should be signed by any club.

On December 22, Sky Sports said that the 23-year-old has been observed by Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, PSV Eindhoven, Villa, and the Hammers throughout his Champions League matches.

They assert that in order to persuade them to let rid of him in January, it will require more than the £25 million transfer record held by Celtic.

Speaking about this circumstance, Dr. Brar—a sports scientist and physical therapist—told Villa



Since availability is the greatest talent, his playing record has always been highly valued and is evidence of his work ethic and commitment off the field.

It is noteworthy that he has participated in almost all of the games since the previous season.

“If he does end up leaving during the January transfer window, he will pass his medical, and there shouldn’t be any issues.”

This season, the 23-year-old has been in incredible form for Celtic, scoring 10 goals and dishing out seven assists in 21 league games.

It’s not like he’s only playing against inferior opponents; in six Champions League games, he’s also racked up three more assists.

It’s unclear if Villa will be able to afford to spend a lot of money on O’Riley during the January transfer window.

Due to their exceptional achievement of winning the league and placing in the top four, the owners may be willing to relax their financial restrictions.

In unrelated Aston Villa news, following his recent actions, a Sky Sports commentator blasted a first-team player, labeling him “Foolish.”
