Birmingham-born forward Rushian Hepburn-Murphy made three appearances for Aston Villa during the 2017-18 Championship campaign.
He also appeared in two cup fixtures for Steve Bruce’s side, and there is no question that the 19-year-old is highly regarded at the club.
It is his performances in Premier League 2 that have made the biggest impression, however, and he landed the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for April following some extremely impressive form, which is detailed in the tweet below.
Hepburn-Murphy is unlikely to be involved in Villa’s Championship playoff semi-final, but the teenager is surely in the plans of head coach Bruce moving forward.
The club’s supporters, who have also recently commented on centre-back James Chester, have been reacting to Hepburn-Murphy’s recent form, and it would be fair to say that a number are very excited about his future at Villa Park.
