Three-And-A-Half Year Deal for Osbourne

"We are hoping to agree the contract within the week, a three-and-a-half-year contract," the Villa boss has said.

"Isaiah has got potential and I am very pleased with the way he has played. He played better at Everton than on Saturday against Middlesbrough but that is only to be expected of a young player.

"He has played four or five first team games now and I am very pleased with him."
