Done deal: Aston Villa agree midfielder terms after paperwork finalised
By Amir Mir
Aston Villa midfielder Riccardo Calder has moved on loan to League Two outfit Doncaster Rovers until January, it has been confirmed.
Doncaster announced on their official website that Calder has re-signed for Darren Ferguson’s side after an impressive spell at the club last season.
Villa’s academy product is yet to make his debut for the first team, but has been an unused substitute on many occasions.
The 20-year-old recently signed a contract extension which keeps him at the club until 2016-17 after impressive displays at the Keepmoat Stadium.
The League Two club announced their signing on Twitter on Tuesday night.

Prior to that, Villa’s under-21 player plied his trade in Scotland with Dundee for the first part of the 2015-16 season before moving to Doncaster where he played 12 games for Ferguson’s side.
The versatile midfielder was straight into action for his loan club when he took part in the club’s first pre-season game against Rossington Main FC on Tuesday evening.
Calder will return to Villa Park on January 2 when his loan deal expires, but the youngster will be looking to do enough at Doncaster to impress his new Villa boss.
