19-year-old Aston Villa Academy graduate Viljami Sinisalo has enjoyed a great season out on loan with Scottish Championship side Ayr United, but this week he sadly returned to us for treatment after picking up a troublesome groin injury.

The young Finnish goalkeeper headed out north of the border back in October when their season began and he quickly impressed and established himself as their No 1 stopper, and his time at Ayr comes to an end with him making 22 league appearances for the side, with a further 8 appearances in Cup competitions.

Across the spell, the youngster helped himself to nine clean sheets and plenty of praise in the process.

Taking to social media to confirm his injury, Sinisalo said.

“Absolutely gutted to have had to cut my loan short after an injury. Just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone @AyrUnitedFC for making my loan spell enjoyable and making me feel welcomed from the moment I stepped in the building 9 months ago! Only got good things to say about the club on how they have treated and helped me during the season. It’s a loan spell that I’m sure I’ll remember for years to come. Also want to say thank you to all fans and I’m absolutely gutted not to have had the chance to see you all at Somerset! I wish all the players, staff and fans all the best for the rest of the season and the future.”

Whilst 2020/21 has been a strange old season in football, this has been a great first loan spell for him even with the absence of fans, so it should certainly bring him on massively and you can only imagine he’ll get another spell next season at a slightly higher level to continue his development.

He clearly made an impression on Ayr fans judging by these messages.
