Villa Youngsters Continue To Make Progress With Decent Loan Spells

We’re into the month of the jolly fat man invading chimneys everywhere, but there’s still time for an Aston Villa loan round up as we leave November in the rearview.

Having got a good number of youngsters out for proper experience during the last window, we have to wait and see who else may follow in January as quite a few of our youngsters are looking impressive in the Under 23 set up, but for now, here’s who’s where and how they are getting on.

Jack Clarke was the first out and he headed to Yeovil Town for a season long spell in the National League. The 21-year-old midfielder made his full debut for The Glovers back on October 3 as they got their league campaign underway and so far he has two starts and one substitute showing to his name.

Indiana Vassilev was the next out and he went to locals Burton Albion also on a season long loan. Having long kicked off their League One campaign, the young striker is starting to build on his six senior substitute showings for us, with eight starts and with three substitute appearances so far. The 19-year-old American is still looking for his first goal for The Brewers.

Young goalkeeper Viljami Sinisalo was the next to go and he went north for a season long spell with Scottish Championship side Ayr United. Their campaign also began in October and the 19-year-old Finnish youngster has made five appearances in the Scottish League Cup, along with five stats in the Scottish Championship.

Technically, Mbwana Samatta headed out on loan to Turkish side Fenerbahce, but with an obligated buy clause in place, I won’t give updates for him as he will no doubt have a decent year in the Super Lig.

Prior to the closure of the window, we also saw Cameron Archer head out locally and he went to Solihull Moors on a deal that expires on January 3. He made his substitute bow in their opener against Woking as he came on as a 59th minute substitute and he made his full debut in the following game against Wrexham. So far he’s made four starts and three substitute appearances, returning two goals in the league.

The last departure was Lewis Brunt, who returned to Gloucester City on a three month spell (he was with them in the second half of last season). The 19-year-old agreed the move whilst recovering from an injury, so he didn’t join up with them until the end of October. I believe he made his debut at the end of November against Farsley Celtic, and he now has two starts to his name.
