The Athletic have recently issued an update about the situation of Aston Villa’s young midfielder Jacob Ramsey.
Ramsey, currently 19, is a product of Villa’s youth academy and broke into the club’s first-team only earlier this year, but there seems to be interest in the young midfielder.
Should Villa loan out Jacob Ramsey?
Championship interest in Ramsey
The Athletic released an update on Keinan Davis, but the piece also carried some bits of information about Ramsey’s situation at Villa Park. The article revealed that Ramsey is on the target list of many Championship clubs right now but as things stand, Villa expect the youngster to stick around.
Ramsey was loaned out to Doncaster in January 2020 earlier this year but returned to Villa Park in the summer of 2020 (as per Transfermarkt).
Birmingham Mail had reported about Ramsey last month, saying that Championship clubs are indeed interested in him. The report from the Athletic though, could be a positive considering how Villa expect the 19-year-old to stay.
Gabriel Agbonlahor has previously praised Ramsey and said: “As an Aston Villa player who went through the academy and made my debut at the same age, it’s amazing to see.
“Hopefully the rest of the Under-18s and Under-23s can see him as someone to look up to and try and get into that first-team as well because Dean Smith has proved if you’re good enough, he’ll play you.”
Loan move might benefit Ramsey
In the Premier League this season, Ramsey has made five appearances and he has played only 122 minutes of football in the competition. He has played more in the League Cup and keeping that in mind, the upcoming FA Cup may allow him more game time (as per Transfermarkt).
Having said that, the 19-year-old might need more game time to develop and because of how well the first XI are playing, Villa may not give him that. So it might make more sense for the club to loan Ramsey out – especially considering how well he had done at Doncaster last season.
In other news, Villa fans have been delighted about the news about a potential exit of a player – read more about it here.
