The 18-year-old only arrived at Bodymoor Heath last summer from West Brom and has clearly impressed Steven Gerrard. He has been a regular in the matchday squad since December and even made his Premier League debut in the 2-0 win over Brighton at the end of February.

Iroegbunam’s new contract runs until 2027, with Villa announcing that he will ‘become a full-time member’ of Gerrard’s first-team squad.

The Latest: Preece reacts

Preece firstly relayed the news regarding Iroegbunam’s maiden England under-19 call up via Twitter on Friday.

He then responded to the new ‘long-term’ deal for the midfielder, labelling it a ‘brilliant day’ for the Villa player.

Villa fans! Do you remember which club James Milner left AVFC for?

The Verdict: Good news

Villa and Gerrard clearly rate Iroegbunam, so it’s good news that he has committed his future at the club until 2027.

You’d expect that he could feature from the bench in Villa’s final nine Premier League games of 2021/22, gaining more senior experience in the process, especially with the club comfortably sitting in mid-table.

As mentioned, he is now a first-team player, so next season could be a breakthrough campaign for the teenager as he looks to follow in Jacob Ramsey’s footsteps.
