Rushian Hepburn-Murphy posted a hilarious Twitter message to his Aston Villa teammate Keinan Davis on his birthday.

Striker Davies turned, 19, on Monday and his fellow academy product Hepburn-Murphy stated: “shout out to my son on his birthday”.

Hepburn-Murphy, who also plays as a striker, is one year younger than his teammate and was clearly fooling around with his strike partner.

The duo have come through the ranks together at Villa Park and will be looking to stamp their authority on the senior team in the coming years.

Here is Hepburn-Murphy sending this quite funny message to Davis as posted on his personal Twitter account.

Hepburn-Murphy is Villa’s second youngest ever player when he made his debut as a 16-year-old against Sunderland in the Premier League.

Then-manager Tim Sherwood gave the highly-rated youngster his debut against the Black Cats when he came on as a second-half substitute for Christian Benteke during the 4-0 win in 2015.

By contrast, Davis made his senior debut for the Midlands club this season during their 2-0 FA Cup defeat against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Hepburn-Murphy has played two Championship games for Villa this term, first against Newcastle, then against Cardiff in January.

He has scored seven goals for the Villa youngsters during this campaign in 11 games, while Davis has notched up three goals in 14 appearances.

In other Aston Villa news, fans have urged manager Steve Bruce to start this 29-year-old against Barnsley.
