Aston Villa let future star leave on loan

Young left-back Lewis Kinsella has joined non-league Kidderminster Harriers on a one-month deal.

Aston Villa have allowed 21-year-old left-back Lewis Kinsella to join National League strugglers Kidderminster Harriers on a one-month loan deal, the Premier League club confirmed on their official website.

Though he is yet to make his senior debut for Villa, Kinsella has been hotly tipped as one of the club's brightest stars of the future after a successful last year.

The defender was called up to previous manager Tim Sherwood's first-team squad last March because of injuries to senior players at the back, and was named as a substitute in a run of Premier League games.

He was then loaned out to League Two Luton Town for the last two months of the season, where he made his competitive senior debut,

When Villa's first-choice left-back Jordan Amavi was ruled out for the rest of the current campaign back in November, there were suggestions that Kinsella may find himself propelled into action at Premier League level.

However, he has had to settle for being a key player for Villa's Under-21s side as Sherwood's successor Remi Garde has preferred to play first Kieran Richardson and lately the recalled Aly Cissokho on the left side of defence.

Kinsella has now been given the opportunity to play more first-team football to further his development by joining Harries until the middle of next month.
