According to reports from the Birmingham Mail, Aston Villa have snapped up young goalkeeper Max Harris on a trial basis.
Aston Villa have looked to bring in experienced players to the club during the current summer transfer window and the recruitment of John Terry, Glenn Whelan and Ahmed Elmohamady is a testament to this fact.
However, this does not mean that Villa have completely turned a blind eye on bringing in youthful players to the club as well and the Birmingham Mail have revealed that the Midlands outfit have snapped up the promising Max Harris on trial.
Harris is an extremely talented young custodian who has featured for the England Schoolboys and is currently plying his trade for non-league outfit Hereford United.
Villa spotted the talent of Harris recently and have wasted no time whatsoever in handing a trial to the 17-year-old, with a view to a potential contract if he manages to impress during his time with the club’s development squad at Bodymoor Heath.
Hereford boss Pete Beadle confirmed the trial for Harris saying, “We have Max, but he’s going to Aston Villa on Monday for a week, which is fantastic for us.”
