PHOTO: Powell as a youngster in Villa shirt & with 'worldie haircut'

Manchester United 3

Manchester United's England Under-21 midfielder, currently on loan at Leicester City, was happy to dig up a pic from the past.

Normally, pictures of yourself as a youngster are something adults are eager to keep as secret as possible - but not in the age of social media!

Nick Powell is still yet to make his mark at Manchester United despite his obvious talent, but he was happy to post an image indicating he 'liked Villa back in the day.'

Powell posted the picture of himself as a knobbly-kneed young boy clad in the shirt of Premier League rival Aston Villa, and was more than happy to take a swipe at his 'worldie haircut', as he somewhat sarcastically labelled it.

The former Crewe youngster is on loan at Leicester City this season, having impressed while on loan at Wigan last year where he netted 12 times in 42 games, including 3 times in the Latics' brief foray in Europe.

Still yet to make his debut for the Foxes, who have a number of former United players on their books, Powell's only action so far has been during his parent club's dire 4-0 defeat to MK Dons in the League Cup.

The 20-year-old has already played in the Premier League, having made 2 appearances for the Red Devils in 2012-13, and scoring against his future loan side Wigan on his debut.
