It’s turned into a pretty fantastic Monday for young Aston Villa Academy graduate Aaron Ramsey.

Having been with the England Under 19 squad during the international break, much earlier today, the club confirmed that the 18-year-old had now been drafted into the Under 21 set up for their game on Tuesday against Kosovo. He’ll team up with colleague and ‘bro’ Jacob who had already been named in Lee Carsley’s squad.

Then later on in the day, Aaron found himself named on the shortlist for August’s Premier League 2 Player of the Month trophy.

Having scored twice for Mark Delaney’s side last season, Ramsey has picked up where he left off, already netting twice so far in the 2021/22 campaign with two games played. Ramsey scored our first as we came back from 2-0 down to take a 5-2 victory over Nottingham Forest, and then he scored a freekick in our 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough.

He finds himself up against Omari Giraud-Hutchinson (Arsenal), Evan Ferguson (Brighton), Harvey Vale (Chelsea), James McAtee (Man City), Dylan Stephenson (Newcastle), Jonathan Tomkinson (Norwich) and Dilan Markanday (Tottenham Hotspur) in the chase for the trophy.

With a fantastic full debut for head coach Dean Smith in our comfortable EFL Cup victory over Barrow the other week, this could well be a massive season for the youngster.
