Joe Linley signed from West Ham in 2015.
Born in London, Linley can operate at full-back on either flank.
He has been involved in the majority of Villa's U23 matchday squads in their 2016/17 Premier League 2 fixtures so far.
He was a second year scholar for the 2015/16 season and returned from a long-term injury in October 2015's 3-3 draw with Arsenal U18s.
Linley then went on to play his part as the young lions ended the campaign strongly - finishing fifth.
