Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce is keen to sign Yannick Bolasie, Tammy Abraham and Axel Tuanzebe on permanent deals at the end of the season, according to BirminghamLive.
The Championship outfit secured the trio’s signatures in the summer, but only on a temporary basis.
Tuanzebe agreed a second season-long loan spell at Villa Park after spending the 2017-18 campaign at the club on a deal from Manchester United.
Bolasie and Abraham were late arrivals as the Everton winger and Chelsea attacker respectively completed their loan moves in the final week of the window.
According to BirminghamLive, even though none of the arrangements include options to buy, Bruce will push for permanent contracts next summer.
Villa have had some financial issues of late, so it is unlikely that they will be able to secure all three players.
Tuanzebe is probably the most likely to sign on the dotted line due to the fact that he is struggling to break into the United setup and he is already familiar with Villa.
For Bolasie, it will be hard for the winger to drop down a division given that he is used to Premier League football, but the story could change if Villa earn promotion back to the top flight.
Abraham is a tricky one as the 20-year-old has shown plenty of potential, but breaking into the Chelsea first team is a constant struggle.
Again, Premier League promotion is likely to play a major factor in whether a deal could be done.
