Brother of Aston Villa striker Cameron Archer says he needs games

The brother of Aston Villa striker Cameron Archer says he needs to play.

The 20-year-old scored seven goals for 19 appearances while on loan at Preston last season and stayed at Villa to fight for his place – despite serious interested from Championship clubs, including Albion.

However, he has been limited to just seven cameo appearances from the bench this campaign.

And brother Jordan, who plays for National League North outfit Southport, said to the Lancashire Post: “Preston helped him massively.

“It was exactly what he needed, and I don't think it could've gone any better.

“Last week a Preston fan came down to Southport, and he was asking me if there was a chance of Cameron going back.

“He would love to return. The fans know what he thinks of the club. It's a brilliant place and he played some of his best football there.

“If he does go out on loan again, Preston would be his number one destination and is the main place he wants to go."

And Jordan believes Cameron would benefit from playing every week

“The only way he is going to develop is by playing matches," he said. “He came back a better player after his loan last year.

“Having him being on the bench is no good for anyone, and although he's training with Premier League players, game time is more beneficial."
