As Aston Villa move on from Jack Grealish’s decision to chase trophies at Manchester City, we are rightly not letting that effect our summer and on Friday afternoon the club confirmed that highly rated young attacker Louie Barry would get the opportunity to dramatically grow his experience of senior football.

The 18-year-old diminutive talent didn’t let himself down at all when he made his senior debut for our first team in the FA Cup clash with Liverpool, netting for us on the day and he also featured for our Under 23 group in the EFL Trophy clash with Fleetwood Town last season as well. He was also part of the group who lifted the FA Youth Cup trophy as well.

Big things are expected of Barry who was tempted into a move to Barcelona originally, and he will now team up with Paul Cook at Portman Road as he looks to impress Ipswich Town fans in the 2021/22 campaign.

The League One side kick off their campaign tomorrow against Morecambe, but you wouldn’t expect to see Barry in the squad at this stage, but he’ll certainly be another one to keep our eyes on as the campaign progresses.

It’s another season long loan, but we will have a January recall if we don’t feel he’s getting the game time he deserves, but this is a cracking opportunity for the lad as the one concern plenty of fans have is his size and whether or not he can roll with the punches he’ll take from the cloggers in the game – he, and we, will definitely find that out from his spell in League One.

Good luck Louie, I hope you surprise a few people!
