Netherlands Youth Team Star Eligible For Nigeria Beginning To Find His Feet At Aston Villa
Netherlands youth team star of Nigerian descent Colin Odutayo has started catching the eye at Championship club Aston Villa.
The 17-year-old offensive all-rounder was signed by Villa from Racing Genk in the summer of 2017 and managed three goals in 14 matches in the U18 Premier League in his debut season in England.
Odutayo has already doubled his tally for last season after bagging a brace for the U18s in their 5-1 hammering of Southampton on Saturday.
Only two players, Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun and Tottenham Hotspur’s Parrot, have scored more goals than the Dutch-Nigerian starlet in the U18 Premier League South this campaign.
The future looks bright for Odutayo who would fancy his chances of making his competitive debut for Aston Villa in the not too distant future after playing three league games for the U23s this season.
He represented Netherlands U15 national team in 2016.
