Jerell Sellars is a highly-rated forward, known for his pace and expert control.
He spent the final two months of last season on loan at League Two Wycombe Wanderers before returning for Villa's U21 play-off final against Arsenal at the Emirates.
Sellars was signed by Villa from Lincoln City in the summer of 2012 following a successful trial.
His debut campaign as a scholar was very productive as the forward finished the season with 16 goals at U18 level.
He scored on his first senior appearance in a pre-season friendly at Swindon in 2015.
Sellars finished the 2014/15 campaign strongly for the U21s and continued in the same fashion last time out.
