Villa youth will face Middlesbrough at home in the 5th round of the FA Youth Cup - if they get passed Sheffield United who they play at Bramall Lane next Thursday.
19-year-old Norwegian starlet Lasse Staw has been landed a trial at Aston Villa. He currently plays at Fredrikstad who want to extend his contract, however the youth international has jumped at the chance to show the claret and blues what he can do. Staw said: 'Aston Villa have invited me to trial for them. I've known this for quite a while now, but I didn't know the date exactly. Aston Villa have not contacted me personally previously, but they've followed me over time and they have talked to my agent.' Adding, 'Tottenham have been following me as well. They have had scouts watching me play and have had contact with my agent.'
As rumoured yesterday, Luke Moore has been given the green light to resume full training in a bid to push for a return to first team action. Martin O'Neill said: 'Luke's back and the great news is that he's been given the al-clear to resume training. It's been a frustrating time for him and hopefully the worst part is behind him now.'
Stiliyan Petrov is being rested with his hamstring injury being blamed although some reports are suggesting that he has been dropped after struggling to adapt. O'Neill said: 'Stiliyan just doesn't feel right at the minute, so we'll take him out of proceedings for a while.'
Villa miss-fit Eric Djemba-Djemba has joined Burnley until the end of the season. 25-year-old Cameroon international Jumper Jumper, who moved from Manchester United after Sir Alex Ferguson spent a week on his prayer mat hoping someone would take him off his hands, could make his debut against Southampton tomorrow.

One of the gossip sites say that we've told Chelsea they can loan Milan Baros for the rest of the season if they allow Salomon Kalou to move in the opposite direction. Yawn.
Danish international defender Martin Laursen is looking to return in time for the home game against Watford on January 20. Laursen, out since picking up knee ligament damage in the Carling Cup defeat at Chelsea in November, told the official site: 'I started to train with the first team on Monday and it's going well. I am hoping to be in the squad when we face Watford. My goal is to play as many matches as possible. I am really keen to do that. I am really sad that I have been injured so much during my time at Aston Villa, because I want to play here in England.'
Thought for the day: If the black box flight recorder is never damaged during a plane crash, why isn't the whole airplane made out of the same stuff?
