The start of Micah Richards career as a player of Aston Villa kicked off on June 17 of 2015 as he penned a 4 year long deal with the English League Championship club and it actually was a bright start for the English defender as he was a consistent starter.
During Micah Richards debut season with Aston Villa, he managed to make over 20 appearances but things have dramatically changed in his 2nd season as the defender has only been able to make 2 appearances out of the 16 league matches that have been played so far.
This lack of playing time from Micah Richards is starting to suggest that Micah Richards might be interested in making a move away from Aston Villa and the Turkish outfit Trabzonspor is believed to be interested in signing the English defender.
Trabzonspor is believed to be monitoring Micah Richards and a winter transfer window is turning into an event that can actually occur, especially considering the fact that the English defender has gone from being a regular starter for Aston Villa in his debut season to being dropped to the sidelines and things aren’t expected to change anytime soon.
Micah Richards picked up a knee injury back on October 15 of 2016 when Aston Villa faced off with Wolverhampton Wanderers in a match that resulted with a 1-1 draw. Ever since this draw, Richards has not appeared in any match for Aston Villa but his lack of playing time with the English Championship club is not due to his injury as the English defender had already been spending most of his time on the sidelines of Aston Villa even prior to his knee injury.
Aston Villa are prepared to listen to offers for Micah Richards and offload the 28 year old defender who has turned into a irrelevant figure in the English club.
