Joe Bennett joined Villa in August 2012 after making his name at Middlesbrough.

The versatile defender is comfortable playing anywhere down the left hand side, but prefers the full-back berth.

He moved to the North-East from Rochdale at 10 years of age and progressed to 'Boro's' first team, making his debut at West Ham United on the final game of the 2008-09 season.

On his arrival, Bennett described his transfer to Villa as a 'dream come true' and expressed his excitement at playing in front of the Villa Park faithful.

He was part of the England U19 squad at the 2009 European Championships in Ukraine and made his U21 debut in 2011.

Bennett had an injury-hit 2013-14 campaign in claret and blue.

He is now on a season-long loan at Brighton & Hove Albion.
