Aston Villa fans have urged Dean Smith to keep hold of Jacob Ramsey for the season, as they feel he could have a first-team role to play.

Ramsey was handed a start for Villa against Burton Albion last night, and helped the claret and blues to a 3-1 victory.

Ramsey’s performance on the night suggested that he really did have a first-team future ahead of him.

And many Villa fans feel that he should now be kept at Villa Park rather than leaving on loan this season.

Ramsey spent last season on a temporary spell with Doncaster Rovers and he caught the eye at League One level.

If he does stay at Villa he may not get quite as many first-team chances as if he was to go on loan, but he could still be given opportunities by Smith.

Villa scored their goals last night through Ollie Watkins, Jack Grealish and Keinan Davis.

Villa will now take on either Bristol City or Northampton Town in the next round.
