James Chester arrived at Aston Villa in August 2016, shortly after the club’s relegation from the Premier League. The Welshman, who is the club captain, was injured as Villa earned promotion back to the top tier in 2019 but he was there to lift the Play-Off trophy alongside stand-in skipper Jack Grealish.

The centre-back came through the ranks at Manchester United, taking in lone spells at Peterborough United, Plymouth Argyle and Carlisle United before moving to Hull City. Chester played all six games in Wales's journey to the semi-final of EURO 2016. The defender is currently on loan at Stoke City for the remainder of the 2019/20 season.
