Conte: ‘Vecino will be reinstated in the team’

Tue 12 January 2021 | 11:49

Although Matias Vecino has been linked with Aston Villa in recent weeks, Antonio Conte has ruled out selling him in January.

Inter

midfielder

Matias Vecino

has been recovering from a severe knee injury for a long time that has kept him sidelined all season.

Vecino has been also linked with

Aston Villa

in recent weeks, but Inter manager

Antonio Conte

has ruled out selling him in January as he has plans for him.

"He is working separately, he is integrating (back into the team) and it will take some time, but you know as I said in the past that there will be no entries or exits (in January)," Conte said.

"Therefore, when he is well, he will be reinstated in the team and will be part of the group in all respects.”

However, it is believed that he will stay at Inter for the remainder of the season, and then the club will sell him in the summer transfer window.

Villa head coach

Dean Smith

said:

"We are looking at it in general in terms of whether there is anything we need to do.

"We are certainly not desperate in terms of players we need to bring in or go out. We have our finger on the pulse but I don’t envisage us doing an awful lot, to be honest."
