Easah Suliman Loan

As expected Aston Villa’s promising defensive hope Easah Suliman has gone on loan to help further his development.

League Two outfit Grimsby Town came up trumps against ‘a number of clubs’, according to the Mariners’s official site.

What impact that will have on Villa’s table-topping U23 team remains to be seen, as they bid for promotion this season to the Premier League top-tier of U23 teams.

However, there are high hopes for Suliamn within the corridors of Bodymoor Heath, so this will be seen as the next stage of his development to play regular football against grown men week-in, week-out.

He’s previously played in League Two on loan at Cheltenham Town back at the start of the 2016/17 season, making 12 appearances.

Suliman has been a regular star at England youth level, captaining his country on several occasions – notable due to the fact he’s the first player of Asian background to captain England at any age group.

Recently, in played in every game when England U19’s won the European Championship.

The debate whether Suliman should be getting opportunities instead of Villa getting in the 20-year-old Axel Tuanzebe from Manchester United, is potentially a viable one, when you consider how Gareth Barry was playing in the Villa first team as a teenager.

Still, a year can make a big difference at this age bracket, so hopefully this loan will help him kick on next season to be a first team squad member, as he has the potential talent.
