Osbourne on his way to Leicester
Osbourne has the look of a young Patrick Vieira about him, but so far he hasn't shown the promise that will help him win a place in the starting XI.
He will hope to toughen up in the rough and ready world of the Championship and Holloway will take nothing less than 100% commitment from the midfielder.
Another Villa midfielder on the move is Australian Chris Herd. The 18 year old has joined Port Vale on a one month loan deal and he is confident he can help them out of their less than favourable predicament.
The struggle at the bottom of League One will provide a good grouding for Herd who has helped the Villa Reserves to the top of the league this season.
