Jedinak enjoys promotion as Henshall named Aston Villa head of emerging talents and loans

Aston Villa have named Adam Henshall as head of emerging talents and loans.

Henshall, who was previously Shrewsbury Town's head of recruitment, is joining from League One Doncaster and will oversee the loan process as Villa look to move more of their young academy stars out into the Football League.

But he will also be responsible for the club's recruitment of exciting prospects from the EFL as Villa look to broaden their scouting network under sporting director Johan Lange.

Former Villa midfielder Mile Jedinak has been appointed the club's loan player development coach.

Jedinak, who made 80 appearances for the club between 2016 and 2019, will work alongside Henshall by monitoring players out on loan. He will also continue his role coaching at the club's academy.
