John McGinn is expected to make a big impression for Aston Villa, according to Steve Bruce.
And he had his first chance to impress today as he took part in training ahead of the Wigan Athletic weekend encounter.
McGinn was out on the fields of the Recon Training Complex alongside fellow new boys Ørjan Nyland, Axel Tuanzebe, Andre Moreira as they looked to impress the boss before he picks his team to take on the Latics.
It was evident from his pre-match press conference that Bruce is already a fan.
He told the media: “He's a bit different to what we've got in midfield and I'm convinced he'll do well for us. I think he'll be a big favourite here.
“He's left footed, powerful and can score a goal. He gets about the pitch, tackles – all the things you'd want from a modern midfielder.”
