Steve Bruce thinks Aston Villa have “unearthed a diamond” in Keinan Davis.

Davis made his first senior start in the 4-2 victory over Norwich City and performed brilliantly – especially considering he’s only 19-years-old.

Bruce was thrilled with the display and says he’ll be the talk of the town tonight.

He said: “I have always associated Aston Villa with having a big No.9. They always seem to have had one. Keinan was certainly that today.

“Keinan will be talk of everyone tonight. People at the bar will be saying ‘where have we unearthed him from?’ We are delighted with him.

“He is quiet and unassuming and a lad who is delighted to be a professional footballer. 

“He has had to work hard. He has come from non-league. He found it tough.

“He needs to keep that rawness and aggression. He led the line well today.”
