Forward Keinan Davis has committed his long term future to Aston Villa by signing a new contract with the SkyBet ​Championship club.


The deal keeps Englishman at Villa Park until 2020, a move that could turn out to be a real coup for ​Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce.

He made his first senior appearance for Villa against ​Tottenham back in January and has now made his way to become a regular name on the team sheet.


"It's a great feeling to have signed a new contract," he said, speaking to the​ club's official website.


"This is another milestone for me this season - I had my first start and my full league debut then an international call-up [England U20s] and this is another one.”

Davis, who made his full debut for the club against ​Norwich City in August, managed to score his first senior goal just a month later in Villa's 3-0 win over ​Barnsley in September.


"The hard work continues, now.”


Davis’s second goal in all competitions came against ​Burton Albion in the 4-0 away win at the end of September.


"I've got to keep working and reach that next milestone."


With two goals already in just eight appearances this season, Davis is definitely a player Villa fans are glad to keep a hold of.
