Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis has signed a new two-and-a-half-year contract with the Championship club.

The new deal sees the 19-year-old attacker extend his stay with the club until 2020. The news was confirmed on the club’s official website earlier today and on their official Twitter page.

The highly-rated youngster has made quite an impact at Villa Park since joining from non-league Biggleswade Town in 2015.

Villa manager Steve Bruce has shown great faith in the forward, who has repaid him with a series of impressive performances.

He has played in 13 Championship games for Villa this season, scoring two goals.

After making seven appearances from the bench last season he made his full debut for the club in the 4-2 win over Norwich.

He scored his first senior goal for the club in the 3-0 win at Barnsley in September, when he headed Ahmed Elmohamady’s cross into the top corner.

The striker scored again in the 4-0 win over Burton Albion in Villa’s next away match with another header.

Bruce’s side are currently in sixth place in the Championship table. They face mid-table Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Saturday.

They will be looking to bounce back from the 2-1 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in their last match before the international break.

In other Villa news, midfielder Mile Jedinak shocked Honduras nearly as he much as he shocked Villa fans on social media, as he scored a hat-trick to send Australia to the World Cup.
