Instagram Staying with keepers and Villa under-23 stopper Viljami Sinisalo has been impressing out on loan at Ayr United in the Scottish Championship. The Finland under-21 international, 19, has started every single game for sixth-placed Ayr and has four clean sheets from his 11 games played. Villa's most high-profile player currently out on loan is Mbwana Samatta.

The American teenager, 19, made his first-team debut in the FA Cup at Fulham last season for Villa before going onto make four Premier League appearances from off the bench. After starting eight of Burton's first 13 games after joining on a season-long loan, Vassilev has lost his way having not featured in 10 games since November 21. Vassilev's under-23s teammate Cameron Archer, meanwhile, has been enjoying a decent loan stint at Conference Premier side Solihull Moors, so much so that Moors extended Archer's stay until the end of the season after the Walsall youngster initially signed until January. Archer, 19, has made 10 appearances for Solihull (six starts) and has scored two and assisted one, including a brilliant solo run from his own half to set up Jordan Cranston in the FA Cup against Morcambe.
