Chris Herd didn't play a single minute for Villa in 2014-15 as injury issues and loan spells put a stop to his involvement.

He was involved in pre-season matches against the likes of Mansfield, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, Groningen and Walsall.

But once the season began for real, the Aussie struggled to make an impact.

The Melbourne-born 26-year-old was an unused sub in the 1-0 League Cup loss to Leyton Orient before linking up with Bolton Wanderers on loan.

On his return, he was on the bench for half a dozen matches - against Crystal Palace, Leicester, West Brom, Man Utd, Swansea City and Sunderland before heading to Wigan Athletic until the end of the season.

Herd joined Villa in February 2005, alongside fellow Aussie Shane Lowry.

His willingness to travel half way across the world impressed the academy coaches.

He graduated from the youth set-up to the reserve side and then on to the first team.

Herd, a fine cricketer, has made 42 senior appearances for Villa and scored two goals.
