Aston Villa prospect Aaron Ramsey caught the eye of supporters on social media after scoring twice in the U18s’ FA Youth Cup thumping of Brighton and Hove Albion.
Villa won 3-0, with Kaine Kesler also on the scoresheet.
Goalscoring is nothing new to the Villa youngster, Ramsey has already bagged eight goals in 15 outings for the U23s.
Ramsey has played in multiple roles this season but is most comfortable as a central attacking-midfielder.
Some Aston Villa supporters were so impressed by Ramsey’s performance, they have even started to call for the 18-year-old to feature in the first team.
Here’s what some Aston Villa fans had to say about Ramsey on Twitter:
Ramsey – one for the future
It’s clear to see Ramsey has an eye for goal and why the 18-year-old is getting compared to Jack Grealish.
They both play the same position so Ramsey will hopefully get the chance to learn a trick or two from Grealish on the training ground.
The youngster has already been exposed to senior sides when playing in the EFL Trophy.
Ramsey faced Sunderland and Fleetwood Town for a combined 158 minutes.
The fact Villa U23s were thumped 8-1 and 3-0 by Sunderland and Fleetwood Town respectively shouldn’t reflect on Ramsey’s abilities.
The talented teenager has captained England at youth level and recently signed his first professional contract after attracting reported interest from Ajax and Celtic.
The 18-year-old has yet to play in the Premier League this season but more performances like the one against Brighton will edge him closer to first-team action.
Aaron’s older brother, Jacob, has made 13 Premier League appearances for Villa. The Villains’ next match sees them host Fulham on Sunday, 4 April (4.30pm).
