Easah Suliman has joined Cheltenham Town on loan.
The young defender will link up with the League Two side until January 2, 2017.
It’s an exciting time at Whaddon Road as the Robins are back in the Football League having secured promotion and the Conference Premier title in 2015/16.
The 18-year-old from Moseley in Birmingham, has been with Villa since the age of eight and has captained England at U17 level.
Suliman was a focal part of our U21 side throughout the 2015/16 season.
His first senior involvement came when he was on the bench for Villa’s Capital One Cup meeting with Notts County in August 2015.
Suliman signed a two-year professional contract with Villa in January 2015 – and his development to date has been impressive.
