Rushian Hepburn-Murphy will hope to play an important role in Aston Villa’s 2018-19 Championship campaign.
The 19-year-old, who came through the youth system at Villa Park, scored seven times in eight Premier League 2 appearances for Villa’s Under-23 side last term.
The attacker also featured in three Championship matches, but will be hoping to see more regular first-team action in the new season.
There is absolutely no question that Hepburn-Murphy has talent, and has actually made his Villa debut as a 16-year-old in the Premier League back in 2015.

Villa are currently suffering due to their off-the-field issues, but the Championship outfit have a lot of young talent, and they will have to rely on a number of those next season as head coach Steve Bruce does not have a great deal of money to spend.
The Villa fans are looking forward to seeing Hepburn-Murphy in action next season, and a selection of the best Twitter reaction in relation to the teenager can be seen below:
