Aaron Ramsey: Norwich sign Aston Villa prospect on season-long loan

Aaron is the younger brother of Villa's Jacob Ramsey

Norwich City have signed Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Ramsey on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old made his first-team debut a year ago when Canaries boss Dean Smith was in charge at Villa Park.

He later went on loan to League One side Cheltenham Town, playing 15 games and scoring his first goal in a 2-1 defeat by Bolton Wanderers.

"He's got great hunger and an urgency to learn and get better," Smith told the Norwich website.

"He's just on the back of winning the UEFA U19 tournament with England, so he's a confident boy and has played a couple of games for Villa in pre-season against Walsall and Leeds in Australia."

Ramsey is Norwich's fourth summer signing, following Isaac Hayden, Gabriel Sara and Marcelino Nunez.

"What I want to show the fans is that I can do things other people can't do, I can score goals and get assists - I just love creating goals," he said.
