Aston Villa appear to have a talented young player in the ranks, in the form of USA youth international Indiana Vasillev.

Aston villa snapped up the talented left-winger, who is half-Bulgarian, from the IMG Academy last October.

It seems they have a good talent on their hands as a report from US Soccer highlighted the Villa player in a recent report regarding the USA under-18 sides double win against Costa Rica this week.

Not only that, but they reported he had scored in one of the games. He was on the scoresheet to equalise against Costa Rica before Barcelona youth team product Konrad De La Fuente scored from a free-kick to give the US victory.

The 16-year-old talent is clearly a player held in high esteem by his nation but has featured just three times for the Aston Villa under-18s in the development league so far this season.

The Villans have a fine history of bringing through young talent and Vassilev is undoubtedly at a good club to progress and potentially become a regular at a high level of the game.

Putting in performances and catching the eye on international duty like he has this week can only help him reach his full potential.
