The Tamworth-born teenager was handed his competitive Villa debut during the ill-fated Uefa Cup exit against CSKA Moscow in February.
“He’s got massive potential,” said Young. “If you ask any player or coach about him they will say how good a winger he is.
“He can play on either flank, he’s good with both feet, he can cross it, he can score, he’s got that all-round game and he’s definitely going to be one for the future, if not now.
“The lad’s got a bit of everything and I’m sure he will do really well in the game.”
