Several Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to respond to Jacob Ramsey's tweet in reaction to the news that he has signed a new contract with the Championship club.

The club have today confirmed on their official website that the 17-year-old has penned a long-term deal with the Villans - though it is not specified how long the fresh terms are set to run for.

 

Ramsey has enjoyed a very promising season across the youth ranks at Villa Park, scoring five goals in all competitions from attacking midfield. 

The teenager will now be looking to push onto Dean Smith's radar in the coming months. And unsurprisingly, Ramsey took to social media to express his pride at penning the new deal. But he also may have impressed the fans with his attitude as his tweet showed that he remains focused on Tuesday's FA Youth Cup tie with Reading at Villa Park.

In response to the news, plenty of supporters congratulated the youngster and insisted that they are looking forward to seeing him break into Smith's plans in the near future.

There were also a couple of fans who seemed to offer Ramsey a piece of advice to speed up his progression into the senior side. Left-back is proving to be an issue in the current squad, and some have joked that Ramsey could benefit from proving that he could play there.
