“I’ve had a good record in the U23s - playing 16 times, scoring seven goals and getting seven assists,” he said.

“I’m a bit of a playmaker. I like a shot but do love a tackle as well.”

He added: “I spoke to the gaffer and it seemed a perfect fit for me.

“We’re in a good position in the league looking for promotion.

“Villa want me to gain experience, and this will be a good opportunity for me.”

Ramsey made his Villa debut off the bench in the derby against West Bromwich Albion in the Championship last season and has featured in two cup matches since.
