He's so slight though. I'd worry that big centre backs would rough him up. Burnley's bruisers would try to beat the shit out of him.

Yep, its a fair point, similar to when Jack came on against Hull and Bruce had his cloggers smashing the shit out of him at every opportunity.

But, well have to find out sometime, maybe just have him in and around the first team and build him up from there.

Jack's loan spell at Notts County must have done a lot of good for him. Going out on loan might be the next step.

I haven't been this excited about somebody breaking through since Jack.

I don't remember Michael Owen being built like a brick shithouse? And look at the defenders he ran against?

He is good enough against players of his own or similar age. The U23s is a bit of a misnomer at the moment.

Get him around the first team squad till the end of the season and then a loan next season.

I'm not sure about a loan just yet, his form recently is good enough to give him a look on the bench (8 in his last 5 games including the cup) so I'd do that and then make a decision on what to do next season in the summer.

Four months, then, with traditional Villa injury inflation. ☹
