Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard admits they're discussing whether to sign a replacement for Diego Carlos.

Carlos faces nine months out after suffering an Achilles injury.

Gerrard, on the possibility of signing another centre-back, said: “It's something we are analysing, we still have three fully fit centre-backs and Kortney Hause is back in full training.

“We have time to decide if we need more support in that area.

“It's certainly a blow to lose a player of his importance.

“He had successful surgery yesterday, so it's important that we look forward and try to be positive.

“We'll give him all the support he needs, he still has a part to play.

“I want him to be involved in the dressing room and to show his leadership skills."
