Aston Villa announced Ajani Burchall has signed a professional contract with the club.
The winger, 17, joined the Academy from AFC Bournemouth in July, having become the third-youngest player to make a senior debut for the Cherries when he appeared as a substitute against Huddersfield Town last season.
Academy manager Mark Harrison said: “We are delighted to see Ajani sign his first professional contract after joining us in the summer.
“We feel he has a lot of potential which, with a lot of hard work, he will hopefully fulfil.
“We look forward to seeing how he develops.”
