Keinan Davis has revealed what would make him closer to being the “finished article” after a “crazy” season at Aston Villa.
In an interview with Sky Sports, the 19-year-old opened up about it being “crazy” that he has started 14 games this season, and shared that the experience has been a “massive learning curve” for him.
The striker alluded to the fact he now feels stronger mentality and is no longer fazed at playing against experienced defenders, but he revealed where his game still lacks.
“I still need to score more goals,” Davis admitted, adding, “if I can add that to my game I’ll be heading towards being the finished article, so I’ll work hard to do that.”
The 19-year-old has scored two goals in 17 appearances across all competitions this seasons, as well as grabbing one goal in one game for the Villans Under-23s team back in August.
The youngster found himself involved with Aston Villa’s first team this season after injuries to players such as Jonathan Kodjia gave him an opportunity, but despite senior players returning Steve Bruce has kept him involved.
The striker impressed Bruce enough to be awarded a new contract in November, a deal which sees him stay at the Villans until 2020.
The 19-year-old is set to start for Aston Villa against Leeds United on Friday, with Kodija ruled out through injury once again.
