Aston Villa won't be loaning out new goalkeeper Joe Gauci, as detailed in a report by the Daily Mail.

The Premier League side have brought him in as immediate cover for Emi Martinez between the sticks.

Gauci, 23, will be staying put at Aston Villa for the rest of this season anyway with the transfer window shut and will train with both Martinez and Robin Olsen.

It is unlikely that he will get much first-team action between now and the summer but the indication is that he will be sticking around at Villa Park and not shipped out elsewhere over the coming years as he looks to push for the number one spot.

There is no doubt that Gauci would probably benefit more from playing every week somewhere else, potentially in England to get used to the style of football. However, Unai Emery probably feels he will gain a lot from training with them and possibly getting cup games.

The stopper has said, as per the Daily Mail: "Playing games is extremely important, but also this is an opportunity to take my career and develop myself as a goalkeeper and take that to the next level."

Gauci has joined Aston Villa on the back of four years at Adelaide United. He was a key asset for the A-League club and made 76 appearances for them in all competitions.

The Australia international has also had stints at Waiheke United, Central Coast Mariners and Mebourne City in the past and is now excited for a new challenge.
