Aston Villa: Aaron Ramsey handed perfect platform to continue rapid development as Burnley news emerge

Writing via his Patreon account (4 August), newspaper journalist Alan Nixon reported that Vincent Kompany’s

Burnley are keeping tabs and are interested in signing Ramsey.

It is believed that Burnley are willing to offer around £12m for the Bodymoor Heath wonder and are hopeful that

boss Unai Emery will be receptive to the offer. However, Aston Villa have demanded a future incentive from Burnley

in order to accept the offer.

Nixon wrote: “The Clarets are willing to go to a guaranteed £12million for attacking midfielder Ramsey and hope

Villa will accept,” Nixon wrote.

“However Villa would prefer to let the deal go ahead with a guaranteed price if they choose to take him ‘home’ in a

couple of years.”

“The Lancashire club want Ramsey badly but they are not sure about that plan which is the idea of Villa’s new

transfer guru Monchi.”

Aston Villa are certainly right to make such demands, with the club’s future and sustainability at the forefront of

their minds.

Ramsey is too big and great a talent to let go of so easily and it’s imperative, the Villans put up a fight of some sort to

ensure they are getting the out of any potential deal for the attacking midfielder.

However, right now it is abundantly clear that Emery just isn’t likely to find space for him in his current midfield

with the likes of Youri Tielemans, Emi Buendia, Douglas Luiz an John McGinn available to him next season, and

they are all likely to be ahead of the 20-year-old in the pecking order.

Ramsey needs game-time, a club where he could thrive every week, just like he enjoyed at Middlesborough before his

unfortunate injury before the end of the campaign.

He scored three goals and provided three assists for the Canaries, before moving to the Boro in January, where he

notched ten goals and six assists in just 18 appearances in the second tier.

Throughout the season he was played in attacking midfield and sometimes out wide or further forward on the left.

He also made his debut for the England Under-20s last season in a friendly against Chile and scored for his country

in his third match for the age group against Australia.

Now, he finds himself at a crossroads, and at a stage in his career where he will want to push on and play more first-

team football as he prepares to turn 21 midway through next season.

And playing for Burnley could present him with the perfect platform to continue his stunning and rapid


Vincent Kompany has picked up a burgeoning managerial reputation in the UK right now, following his superb and

unstoppable exploits in the Championship last season as they bulldozed their way into a Premier League return with

some attractive, front-footed and progressive style of play for which Ramsey could certainly thrive in.

Possessing superb tactical understanding, unerring movement and ball-control coupled with his decisive effect in the

final third, the £12m Burnley are willing to shell out means, they are serious about Ramsey’s development and

playing in the Premier League could well hand the 20-year-old the exposure he needs to take that next level like his

older brother, Jacob.

It’s clear Aston Villa want Aaron to follow in his brother’s footsteps, but whether that’s at Villa Park or another club

remains to be seen. For now, though, Emery and the West Midlands outfit must ensure that provide Ramsey with the

best deal and conditions possible for him to fulfil his undoubted potential.
