The midfielder might get a chance in the Villa first-team in the years to come.

Aston Villa have been in training this week hoping to pick up a rare win in the Premier League this weekend.

Of course that will not be easy.

Villa are taking on Arsenal at Villa Park on Sunday, hoping to get their first win in the Premier League since the opening game of the season against Bournemouth.

Training this week has welcomed back the club's prodigal son. Jack Grealish, the maverick midfielder with a penchant for a night out, had been dropped to the Under-21s for the past fortnight. However, he is now back in sessions along with another top Villa talent.

In one of these pictures shared on the Aston Villa Twitter account you can see a young lad wearing the number 61 training attire.

That young lad is an 18-year-old teenager who headed over to the Midlands from ECU Joondalup in Western Australia and has earned rave reviews for his all-action performances in the midfield for Villa's Under-21s this season.

It is unlikely to see him being thrust into the action any time soon from Remi Garde. With Villa in serious trouble however, rolling the dice on this teenager might end up being an option.
