Stephen Warnock is back from his loan at Bolton.
The left-back is behind Eric Lichaj and Joe Bennett in the ranks.
Stephen Warnock signed for Villa in August 2009.
In his first season, Warnock made 30 league appearances and 11 across the League and FA Cups.
Despite a run of impressive performances at left back, Warnock had to wait a year to score his first goal for Villa, but it was worth it.
He scored against his former club in the famous 6-4 victory over Blackburn Rovers in the 2010 Carling Cup semi-final.
But it wasn't just any goal - the effort brought a two goal deficit back to just one before half time.
This would later prove to be a pivotal game-changer.
Warnock then went on to star in Villa's Carling Cup final and FA Cup semi-final appearances at Wembley in the same season.
However, Warnock didn't feature much in the 2010-11 season.
Warnock's Villa career was revived when Alex McLeish took charge of the club.
McLeish praised Warnock for his "phenomenal attitude" and rewarded him with a first team slot and 32 league appearances in 2011-12, including two goals against Manchester City and Bolton.
Warnock was Mr. Versatile throughout the term, often adopting a valiant role in left midfield due to injuries.
This included tireless performances in unfamiliar territory against Liverpool and Bolton, amongst others.
Warnock began his professional career at Bradford City in 2002, making 12 league appearances, scoring one goal.
He then went on to sign for Coventry City in 2003, making 44 league appearances and scoring three goals.
Following this, Warnock joined his boyhood club Liverpool in 2004.
He stayed there for three years but only made 40 league appearances before moving to Blackburn in 2007.
Warnock cemented his place as a fan-favourite at Ewood Park, making 87 league appearances in three seasons before moving to Villa.
Warnock received his first call up to the senior England squad in August 2005.
Despite this, he didn't make his England debut until 2008 against Trinidad and Tobago on June 1.
He then received a call up for a friendly against Egypt in the early 2009-10 season.
Due to his impressive Villa form, in 2010, Warnock received another call up to England's final 23-man World Cup squad.
Stephen Warnock was in England World Cup squad in 2010 but didn't play.
