Umit Eminoglu

Umit Eminoglu

Villa have another exciting goalscoring talent on their hands in Umit Eminoglu.

Eminoglu found the net nine times in the Barclays Premier Academy League during the 2011-12 season.

Two of those goals came on the first day of the season in a 7-3 victory over Crewe Alexandra.

He took his tally to three in two games with strike in Villa's 2-1 win against Newcastle a week later.

The goals continued to flow for the Turkey youth international.

He scored in defeats at the hands of Charlton, Cardiff City, Birmingham City and Leicester City, as well as notching twice in the 11-3 success over MK Dons and a draw with Reading.

Those goalscoring exploits earned the teenage centre-forward the nickname 'Shoot' amongst his team-mates.

Although he was born in Solihull, Eminoglu is of Turkish descent and he has already represented Turkey at U16 level.

His favourite player is Real Madrid's Turkish-born German playmaker Mesut Ozil.
