Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to the latest update on one of their young stars Louie Barry, following his recent performances for the academy.
It looks like he is on great form for the youth side, as journalist Ashley Preece tweeted: “Louie Barry with 5 goals in 6 starts now for Villa’s under-23s following tonight’s double in the 3-2 defeat to Fulham at Bodymoor Heath”
The Premier League side managed to pick up the 17 year-old from Barcelona for less than £1million in 2020 (Transfermarkt). His great performances so far this campaign at such a young age should definitely see him highlighted as a player for the future by Dean Smith.
Some Villa fans believe he should be given a chance to feature in the match day squad now. His good form may not warrant that yet, however with Keinan Davis struggling either with injuries or to compete in the Premier League, as well as Ross Barkley’s injury, now could be the best time to give him a slot on the bench.
Here is what Villa fans said following the tweet:
Louie Barry with 5 goals in 6 starts now for Villa's under-23s following tonight's double in the 3-2 defeat to Fulham at Bodymoor Heath. The 17-year-old's really starting to warm up now after a regular run of game time. Looking razor-sharp. #AVFC

Got to be worth a shot in the bench soon considering Davis is made of glass https://t.co/oeqTRXR4Ww
