Nathan Baker was a regular in the Villa backline throughout the 2013-14 campaign.

And during his lengthy spell in B6, the Worcester-born man has become part of the furniture at Villa Park.

The 23-year-old joined the club as a trainee a decade ago and has since gone from strength to strength.

The defender rose through the Villa Park youth ranks and made his academy debut in 2007 where he partnered fellow graduate Ciaran Clark in the centre of defence as Villa lifted the national title.

He also featured seven times for the equally-successful reserves who won the Premier Reserve League South in the same season.

In 2008, Baker earned a taste of first-team action when he was selected for and featured in games against FC Wil and FC Z├╝rich in Villa's pre-season tour of Switzerland.

With competitive senior action at a premium, former Villa Striker Chris Sutton signed Baker on loan for Lincoln City where he gained vital game time.

Back at B6, in January 2011, he was an unused substitute for the 1-1 draw against Birmingham City but made his first-team debut against Wigan Athletic nine days' later.

In May 2013, Baker penned a new deal with the club, keeping him at Villa Park until 2016.

Baker has represented England at U19, U20 and U21 level.

Along with his team-mates, Baker will be looking to improve on last season's 15th-place Barclays Premier League finish.
