Bradley Watkins is hoping to be Villa's regular goalkeeper in the Barclays U21 Premier League during 2014-15.

Watkins appeared 12 times for the U21s in the 2013-14 campaign.

The shot-stopper also had a brief loan spell at Tranmere Rovers last term, but didn't make any appearances during his month-long stay with the Merseyside club.

Watkins played a huge role in Villa's triumphant NextGen Series campaign in 2012-13.

He started the quarter-final and semi-final games against Olympiacos and Arsenal respectively before making some crucial saves in the 2-0 final victory over Chelsea.

Watkins has represented England at U16 and U17 level.

Former Villa and Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel is his all-time favourite player.
