Aston Villa fans have praised Leon Bailey after the Villans Twitter account shared a video of the 24-year-old in training ahead of the Chelsea match.

Bailey joined Villa in the summer for a reported £30million fee, and arrived at Villa Park to much fanfare.

“He’s had a good 10 days training so, we won’t build him up too much because he needs to find his feet in the Premier League but I’m sure from what I’ve seen so far it won’t take too long,” Dean Smith said yesterday.

Villa face Chelsea on Saturday evening and, in the absence of Emiliano Buendia, Bailey looks likely to start.

And Villa fans are eagerly looking forward to more finishing like the below:
