Osbourne reveals how he was spotted by Villa

Isaiah Osbourne has revealed how he was first snapped up by Aston Villa.

The 20 year-old midfielder told Villa's website: "The way I got to join Villa was quite funny.

"My brother Isaac used to be at Derby, and my Dad used to take me to watch him train.

"We were doing some kick-ups with a ball at the side of the pitch and the coach came over asked me to go training at Derby. He also worked for Villa, and a little while later he suggested that I came here.

"At the time I didn't mind which club I went to. I just wanted to get into football. I must have shown a little bit of magic on the touchline!"
