Villa defender features as trialist for Under-18s

Aston Villa defender Johan Abdoul is currently on trial with Leicester City.

The 18 year old Frenchman, whose contract at Villa Park expires this summer, scored the equaliser on Saturday (April 22) as the young Foxes drew 1-1 with their counterparts at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Leicester City have been looking at several defenders in recent weeks, with Harry Hudson of West Ham and Abdoul’s Villa colleague Jack Coates playing trial games for the Under-18s.

Trials for both Coates and Aboud could have been arranged by Leicester City Under-23s coach Ben Petty, who was previously the Under-18s manager at Aston Villa.
