Rushian Hepburn-Murphy is regarded as one of Villa academy's hottest young prospects.
At the age of 16 years and 176 days, he made his first team bow, coming on as a substitute in Villa's 4-0 win at Sunderland and became the second youngest player in the club's history - and the youngest to appear in a match for the club during the Premier League era.
Fast forward 14 months, the 17-year-old was a late substitute in the claret and blues' goalless draw with Newcastle in their penultimate Barclays Premier League fixture of 2016.
Despite missing four months of the campaign through injury, Hepburn-Murphy scored crucial goals in the U21s' 2015/16 play-off games.
He netted the winner in their semi-final win at Swansea before scoring the opener at Arsenal in the 3-1 final defeat.
Hepburn-Murphy was also influential in the HK Soccer 7s victory, linking up well with Harry McKirdy as Villa emerged victorious.
He joined Villa at the age of nine.
The Aston-born striker graduated through the academy teams and is now a regular in the club's higher age group teams.
