Andre Green
« on: April 07, 2016, 01:20:48 AM »
Paper talk page of Arsenal and Liverpool sniffing around. Interesting that he's on the fringes but not getting the 1st team; not sure how well he's performing for the U21's??

Aston Villa starlet Andre Green is wanted by four of the Premier League's big guns.

Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the 17-year-old winger.

And they sent their top scouts to watch the pacy wide man in action for Villa's under-21s against West Brom this week.

Green has been at Villa since the age of nine, made his under-21 debut aged 15 and is rated by club staff as an even better prospect than Jack Grealish.

Having made the bench for the final game of last season against Burnley, Green was handed his Premier League debut against Spurs last month.

He made his second appearance in Villa's following game at Swansea.

Thanks PWS for the quote. The report I saw this afternoon was just the 2 I mentioned. If true interesting whether he's not getting game time for fear of putting him on the shop window.

I haven't seen Andre Green. Does he look better than Luke Moore did at that age?

He's under contract for another 2 years, so I doubt we'll be selling him, yet!

Wasn't there some rule brought in a few years ago, where Premier League teams are allowed to snap up non-Premier youth players for a pittance?

75m buy out clause? Wouldn't have a problem with that...

(Not claiming that he is, or will be at any point over the next three years, worth anything close to 75m. But a buy out clause isn't necessarily a bad thing.)

Like the look of him versus wolves  and can be given some chances I feel. Sometimes people say too soon to judge a player being up to standard or not good enough like either way .

 I think he is and was a highlight in villa team when came on. I would have had the double substitution at time when he looked likely to come on when greakish introduced  but Bruce held him back. I'm generally excited by Green as hes only 18 .

The 18-year-old winger produced an encouraging display but was unable to help lacklustre Villa find a way back into the game.
Bruce too was impressed and said :

"He was a big plus for us," "He's a young lad with a bright future for us. Hes 18. He's showed a little bit of quality.
He's got on the ball and kept hold of it and that was good to see. He's the one bright thing of today."

I'd be tempted to give him a chance against Preston.

I think it was him that did a quality nutmeg on one of the doghead defenders to get to the touchline. We need to blood some of these youngsters.
