Midfield starlet Gardner moves to Coventry City on loan

Young midfielder Gary Gardner has moved to Coventry City on loan.

Gardner will link up with the Sky Blues until January 3.

Gardner's exploits in the NextGen U19 tournament will have come to the attention of Andy Thorn as he looks to guide the Championship side out of the bottom three.

Gardner bagged a hat-trick as Villa saw off Ajax and stormed into the quarter-finals of the competition.

The 19-year-old will be eligible for Coventry's weekend clash at Brighton.

Gardner is the fourth player to go out on loan this week, joining Shane Lowry [Millwall], Nathan Baker [Millwall] and Habib Beye [Doncaster].
