The Portuguese centre-back joined the Villans on loan over the summer, but has endured a woeful spell with his new side so far.
Ilori is yet to make a first-team appearance for Villa, albeit an ankle injury has been a factor, and with Tim Sherwood having left, his status under new boss Remi Garde remains unclear.
Should the Frenchman not take a shine to the 22-year-old he may end up back at Anfield next year, even though the relegation strugglers have an option to make his stay permanent for between £6m and £9m – dependent on appearances – as a part of the initial £1m agreement.
As things stand, Ilori’s chances of getting ahead of other Villa players in his favoured centre-back role appear slim.
The youngster remains highly-rated among Liverpool fans, who called for him to be given a chance upon his return from a fine U-21 European Championship campaign over the summer – Portugal finished as runners-up.
