Given that Villa already have the likes of Tom Heaton, Orjan Nyland, Jed Steer and Lovre Kalinic, it is unlikely that they will offer him a deal.

Archer has amassed plenty of Football League experience over the course of his career. After coming through the youth academy with Spurs, he gathered senior experience during loan spells in the lower divisions with Wycombe Wanderers, Northampton Town and Millwall, before leaving Spurs to make a permanent move to the Lions in the summer of 2015.
