Aston Villa: Declan Firth on trial

Aston Villa: Declan Firth on trial -Aston Villa

Aston Villa have taken versatile Chelsea teenager Declan Firth on trial, according to Birmingham Live.

The Lowdown: Livramento interest

This isn’t the first time Villa have been interested in a Stamford Bridge teenager.

Villa were eyeing a move for Tino Livramento in the summer, however, the full-back ended up signing for Southampton and has been a regular in the Premier League under Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Johan Lange and co have now acted on another Blues youngster, with Firth only signing for at Stamford Bridge back in May.

The Latest: Firth trial

Birmingham Live shared a story on Friday evening, claiming Firth is on trial at Villa.

The 19-year-old, who can play as a left-back, left-midfielder or a right-midfielder, started for the Under-23’s in a victory over West Brom.

Ashley Preece labelled Firth’s display as ‘menacing’, with Caleb Chukwuemeka grabbing the headlines with a hat-trick in a 4-2 win.

Villa have made some unusual signings in the past, can you identify some? First up, who is this who Villa landed in 2016?

The Verdict: Smart move?

After missing out on Livramento, it seems as if Villa have taken swift action when it comes to their interest in Firth.

Bringing him to Bodymoor Heath for a trial seems to be a smart option, and should he impress in Mark Delaney’s side, he could be the latest teenager to pen terms at the club’s academy.

We’ve seen at St Mary’s this season with Livramento the impact a youngster from Chelsea can make when given an opportunity, and who knows, Villa could be onto the next impressive talent coming out of Stamford Bridge.
