Young full back Lewis Kinsella is to extend his stay with FA Cup finalists Aston Villa after the club confirmed he will pen a new one-year deal in the coming weeks.

The 20-year-old, who spent the last two months with Luton after joining on loan, making three appearances, has progressed through the ranks at Villa Park.

Boss Tim Sherwood told the club’s official website: “Lewis has done well. He is a player you recognise on the pitch. For a young boy he’s not shy.

“I know his name. Sometimes you see kids and I’ve been at the club for a year and I still don’t know their name and they’ve trained with us 100 times.

“That isn’t what I’m looking for.”

Meanwhile, Kinsella is now hoping to build on his time at Luton and experiences around the Villa first team as he addded: “To be with the first team for that Newcastle game was a brilliant experience.

“The two West Brom games were fantastic too and with the new gaffer, everyone is getting opportunities, so we are just desperate to show what we have for the gaffer.”
