This week has seen Aston Villa busy on a signings front, but not the front that most fans want to see.
Highly-rated young midfielder Jacob Ramsey has penned a new long-term contract at Bodymoor Heath following his continued development. The 17-year-old has scored four goals in nine Under 18 matches for his us so far this season I believe, and he bagged a brace in the FA Youth Cup tie against Swansea City.
Stepping up to Under 23 level, he has five matches to his name, returning one goal.
Maybe a name to watch with that goal return from midfield.
Fellow 17-year-old forward Michael Tait has also penned his first professional deal at the club, signing up for two years having progressed as a second year scholar. He has seven goals in seven matches (across all competitions) for our Under 18s.
He’s been with us since he was a 7-year-old.
Well done to both, the hard work starts now.
