The 16-year-old, who has represented his country at youth level, is highly rated and, once signed, will be the latest example of Villa’s planning for the long-term future and their intentions to add players from around the continent to their already thriving academy. Because he is not signed up to a professional contract, Swinkels will only cost Villa a training fee, according to ED. Swinkels would be the second signing for the academy in quick succession after it was confirmed that the Lions had agreed a deal with St Patrick’s Athletic defender Aaron O’Reilly. The defender, who has just turned 16, has represented Ireland at youth level having also had spells in his embryonic career at St Francis, Crumlin United and Home Farm.
