Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor is linked with a switch to the MLS after falling out of favour at the Championship club.

Atlanta United and Minnesota United have emerged as possible destinations for Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor.

The 29-year-old has spent his entire career at Villa Park but he has fallen out of favour at the club after a series of below-par performances during their relegation from the Premier League.

It has been reported that the forward rejected the opportunity to leave the club earlier in the summer, but according to the Express & Star, a move to the MLS could materialise should he wish to seek pastures new.

Agbonlahor still has two years remaining on his contract but it has been suggested that owner Dr Tony Xia is not considering paying up the remainder of his deal.

The attacker has scored 84 goals in 371 appearances for Villa.
