"I will play with the U18 team but hope to move up to the reserves as soon as possible. I feel I can handle the pace here so I want to take the step from U18 to reserves within a year," he told fotbolltransfers.com.

"Aston Villa graduate often players for the first team. Their academy is the best of those I was with. I feel that I can best develop here."
