Zimbabwean teenager Thierry Katsukunya has secured a regular spot in the Aston Villa U21 team, a feeder to the senior squad.

Starting in the match, as he did in his previous three appearances, Katsukunya is expected to play the full ninety minutes.

Playing as a centre-back, Katsukunya joined the Birmingham-based club in 2021 after transferring from Coventry City. He inked his inaugural professional contract the following year.

Born in the UK to a Zimbabwean father and a Welsh mother, Katsukunya has previously represented Wales at the U17 level but remains eligible to play for Zimbabwe due to his father’s heritage.
