Arsenal scout Glynn Lodge was in the stands to see Aston Villa forward Keinan Davis play against Burton Albion on Tuesday night, according to the Mirror.

The 19 year old was given only his seventh senior league start by manager Steve Bruce but he made it on to the score sheet, scoring Villa’s third goal in a 4-0 win. Scouts from Manchester United and Everton were also at the game, with both also believed to be keeping tabs on Davis’s progress.

The England Under 20 international has been at Villa for less than two years since joining from non-league side Biggleswade Town after previously being released by Stevenage Town.

Typically the forward has played as a number nine for Steve Bruce, but he is also just as comfortable playing in an attacking midfield role or as a support striker. Since making his debut against Spurs in the FA Cup back in January, he has made 15 appearances for Villa, scoring two goals and providing two assists.
