He was part of the Blades team that suffered play-off heartbreak against Huddersfield at Wembley in May.
But the 23-year-old hopes that big-game experience will stand him in good stead for the future.
"Big experiences like that, big games, you definitely learn a lot," he told Villa's website. "I learned a lot from Wembley playing there in front of massive crowds.
"I think the disappointments you learn from more because you want to be where the other guys are.
"So hopefully this season we'll have some success."
