Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton all had scouts at Keinan Davis' latest impressive display. Aston Villa's England U20 hot-shot Davis, 19, scored his second Championship goal in a 4-0 romp at Burton on Tuesday. He smashed in a powerful header on just his seventh League start to open the scoring in the 13th minute from Ahmed Elmohamady's cross. The 6ft 2in ace's all-around performance using his pace and power was stunning as he bullied the hosts before being rested on 65 minutes with Villa 3-0 up. Villa boss Steve Bruce, who selected the starlet ahead of £12million Republic of Ireland forward Scott Hogan, described Davis post-match as a “typical No.9” and the team's “focal point”. He also tipped the youngster for a “wonderful” future as he pledged to keep the his feet on the ground amid growing interest and acclaim. It caps a remarkable turnaround for Davis who was released by Stevenage aged 16 before Villa snapped him up in 2015 after a prolific spell with non-league Biggleswade Town's under-18s.
