Austrian goalkeeper Thomas Dau has joined the club having impressed during a two-week trial spell.

The 16 year old is the second Austrian shot stopper to be picked up in recent years by Villa, with Robert Olejnik now having moved to pastures new.

Academy Director Bryan Jones spoke to avfc.co.uk: ‘He was on trial with us for two weeks and we were all very impressed with him. We definitely think he’s one for the future.’

I’m sure somebody said that about Olejnik once, but welcome anyway Thomas!
