Manager Rob Edwards has signed Aston Villa youngster Janoi Donacien on loan until January.

The 20 year will get his first taste of Football League life during his time with us, and his parent club handed him a new two year deal in the summer of 2013 following his progression and impressing at U21 level and their NextGen team.

The St Lucia born player was also involved in their first team last season when he was named on the bench for the FA Cup game against Sheffield United, and their Premier League game against Sunderland.

Speaking to the Official Site as his deal was announced, manager Rob Edwards said.

‘Janoi is a player I’ve watched a number of times, he’s a good defender who is very athletic and will give us extra strength in depth at the back. I’d like to thank Paul Lambert and Aston Villa for allowing Janoi to join us.’

Clayton McDonald has also been released by the club.
