Crewe Alexandra Football Club have signed Aston Villa attacker Harry McKirdy on loan for the rest of the 2017/18 season.
The 20-year-old can play on either flank, in behind the striker, or as a forward and is eligible for the clash with Wycombe Wanderers at Gresty Road this weekend.
McKirdy was a scholar at Stoke City during his younger years before switching to Villa Park in 2011 to continue his development.
He signed his first two-year professional contract in summer 2016, that was later extended to 2019, but hasn't yet featured in the first team despite impressing regularly for the Under 23's.
McKirdy enjoyed senior EFL experience on loan at Stevenage for the first half of the 2016/17 season, scoring two goals in 13 appearances for Boro before injury cut short his spell.
Everyone at Crewe Alex would like to welcome Harry to the Club.
