Aston Villa are set to take on Leeds United this evening, with Steve Bruce's side currently in fourth place in the Championship table.

Easah Suliman has been called up to Aston Villa first-team training by Steve Bruce.

Villa’s youngsters have had great success in recent times, with Keinan Davis coming into the first-team.

Davis has impressed hugely with his performances, and Bruce clearly feels that there are others pushing to make the step up.

Suliman is regarded as another of Villa’s brightest up and coming prospects, and has been training with the first-team in the build up to their match against Leeds United tonight.

Although it would be a major surprise if Suliman came into Bruce’s starting line-up, the centre-back may hope to feature soon.

Suliman has made one appearance for Villa’s first-team so far this season, in the EFL Cup.

His chances of playing again have been boosted with both John Terry and Mile Jedinak sidelined with injury.

Suliman still has to force his way into Villa’s team ahead of the likes of Tommy Elphick and Micah Richards.

If Villa can beat Leeds in the Championship tonight, they will move up to third place in the table.
