Deal done: Aston Villa sign left-back Enda Stevens from Shamrock Rovers. The 21-year-old agreed the deal to move from the Dublin side last summer, and now makes the move following end of the Irish season and Rovers' involvement in Europe.
 
Best of look to the kid.Here hoping he makes it.

Best of luck to the lad Thumbs Up

Dunne , Clark and Given all there not to mention a few Irish youngsters aswell , it'll do him the world of good having some Irish players around...

Fair play to the lad, hopefully he makes the grade. McLeish gave Fahey the chance and he grabbed it with both hands so hopefully young Stevens can do the same when called upon. Always puts a smile on my face seeing these lads make the step up from LOI .

After Warnock's display yesterday he may get his chance sooner rather than later.
Football is all very well a good game for rough girls, but
not for delicate boys.

Best of luck to Stevens. 

When he initially signed for villa, he said that he was nowhere near the physical ability and fitness of the other villa players and the villa management were concerned as to whether or not he would be able to make the grade.

However, Enda then got Dubs footballer philly mcmahon to be his personal trainer, and mcmahon runs his own physical and fitness regime. Enda spent months at that, and was over at villa before christmas for an assessment and the staff couldn't believe how fit he had become. 

Enda said last week that he couldn't wait to apply this fitness and ability in the premier league, so best of luck to him. I reckon he might surprise us all.

I read somewhere that he has been over and back of late and that Richard Dunne had taken him around, and helped him get sorted.. That can be only be good in settling the player. With a little luck he could really turn out to be a great player for club and country

anytime i seen this lad for rovers he hasn't been great at all and doesn't look near good enough to be a PL player. I have seen him maybe 8/9 times. hope i'm wrong though

was very impressive in the early part of the season and in there early Euro games
seemed to fall below par after that
will be surprised if he was to start any PL games this season bar injuries
yes Warnock had a shocker the other night but he wont be dropped for that alone
Clark will fill in there if Warnock is left out IMO

Citz, you sure you were watching Stevens?   Was superb early season, lost a bit of confidence around May/June but rediscovered his from from the Champo League games onwards where he was absolutely magnificent.  The tragic death of his sister in around September was a massive blow to him obviously.  I tell yiz now, he'll be playing for Ireland sooner rather than later, I've huge hopes for him, he is class.

He has to take a lot promise out of the start that McClean has made at Sunderland.

Smashing player who showed great potential when at Pats 3 yrs ago. Probably a better midfielder than defender but seems to be comfortable at the back. Having said that was targeted and skinned away to Steaua  but had a great game away to Valletta

He done very well in the LOI but was never an outstanding player for me. I have seen him play twice for Ireland u23s and didnt stand out at all. I think the potential is there, how much is the big question. Best of luck to him. Thumbs Up

yeah seen him in a few of the euro games and a couple of the  Rovers LOI games that were on the box.In the euro games he got skinned a few times and seemed to be caught out of position. One of these games was Spurs at home, Giovani took him to the cleaners two or 3 times. Seen him against Paok away also, not great either. Spurs away i think he was partly responsible for two of the goals, Defoe beat him in the air to score and he was ball-watching for the 3rd to allow Giovani in at the back post to score. Saying that, to be fair i have not seen enough of him. and didn't know his sister died so should cut him some slack.

He's a great crosser of the ball. Hope he gets a chance to prove himself at Premiership level. Good luck to the lad
