According to a report in the Express and Star, Keinan Davis is now back in Aston Villa training.

Davis is not yet fit to start a match, but he has returned to training with the first-team.

The powerful forward has missed the season so far with injury, but his return should further bolster Steve Bruce’s attacking options.

 

Davis is unlikely to start regularly for Villa, but he could provide a good option off the bench.

Davis can be a real aerial presence, and offers a different type of threat to someone like Scott Hogan, who is also returning from injury.

If Davis is to earn a starting spot at Villa he will have to find a way to break up the partnership of Jonathan Kodjia and Tammy Abraham up-front.

Villa have been in poor form of late, winning just one of their last eight games, with the pressure building heavily on Bruce.
