Aston Villa announced the signing of Ajani Burchall.
The winger, 16, joins the Academy from AFC Bournemouth, where he became the third-youngest player to make a senior debut for Bournemouth when he appeared as a substitute against Huddersfield Town last season.
Academy manager Mark Harrison said: “Ajani is a wide attacking player who can also play centrally.
“He has joined us from Bournemouth where he made his debut last season at 16 years of age.
“We would like to place on record our thanks to Bournemouth for their handling of the process.
"We look forward to seeing how Ajani develops over the next few years.”
