Aston Villa Defensive Ace Signs A New Deal With The Club: Does He Have A Future At Villa Park?

New Deal

Aston Villa’s Mitchell Clark has signed a new deal with the club which would keep him at the Villa Park until 2019, the club’s website has confirmed. He is unarguably one of the finest youngsters that the Villans have in their arsenal and is a vital player in Kevin McDonald’s Under23 side. Besides, he has also represented Wales at Under19 level.

Prospects And Position

At the onset, it looks like Clark is destined to achieve great things in future. Predominantly, he is a right-back but is capable enough to ply his trade as a centre-back as well as a left-back and his versatility is one of his strongest suits. Aston Villa have made a shrewd move by making him sign on a new deal and could help the club in their endeavours in the coming seasons.

Where It All Began?

He started playing for Bedworth Eagles junior football club where he was scouted by a lot of English clubs but was eventually picked up by the Lions. He was signed by Aston Villa at the tender age of eight and impressed during his time with the Under16 and Under18 squads before paving his way into the Under23 side. His developmental process has been quite a healthy one.

Playing Style

The 19-year-old is blessed with raw pace and is quite athletic as well. He loves to gallop forward whenever situation permits him in order to score goals and create chances for his teammates. He has showcased a lot of energy while playing for Aston Villa’s youth sides and despite being a youngster, he has shown immense maturity and calmness.

He might still be far from being a finished product but the calibre he has shown has been appealing. He reads the attacking endeavours of the opposition cleverly and doesn’t refrain from venturing into the tight areas to do the needful. Besides, he is very good in the air, is mobile and passes the ball well and all these ingredients make him an astute package.

What Lies Ahead?

Steve Bruce’s side are one of the teams which are aiming for promotion to the Premier League. Irrespective of whether they get the uplift or not, someone like Clark could be vital to their plans for the coming season. He should be given an adequate amount of opportunities in the senior side to showcase his mettle and it would be intriguing to see how Aston Villa use him.
