The 21-year-old performed heroics between the sticks in the weekend draw against Barnsley and boss Sammy McIlroy says he wants to keep the custodian beyond his one-month loan deal.
The Edgeley Park outfit are currently without first choice James Spencer, while fellow loanee keeper Nick Colgan is due to head back to Hibernian next month, pressing McIlroy into action.
"We are looking to do a deal with them (Villa)" McIlroy told M.E.N. Sport. "I have wanted a keeper since I have been here, and the sooner we get it done the better.
"I haven't spoken to Villa about anything like that yet. But we will be going down that road.
"Boaz is a good keeper and he was absolutely magnificent on Saturday. He is still a young boy as well, so he will improve - and we have another great prospect in young Spencer."
The former Northern Ireland boss may not stop with Myhill as he admitted that he needs more players to provide competition in his squad if they are to climb out of the bottom four in Division Two.
"We are still looking for a couple of new players," said McIlroy. "Competition will push these boys to the limit. The spirit is there, and our fans went home from Oakwell happy."
