Villa eye Jamaican starlet
The Second City outfit have lined up a three-week trial stint for the 19-year-old, who is rated very highly in his homeland.
Brown was due to link up with Jamaica’s senior squad on a training camp, but he is now heading for England instead.
“He was invited to the national squad, but we had to inform them that he will be leaving the island for a trial in England,” Anthony Williams, Brown’s coach at Rusea’s High School, told the Jamaican Gleaner.
“Brian (Brown) will be at Aston Villa where he will remain for about three weeks.”
Brown will be hoping he can emulate fellow Caribbean Dwight Yorke – who joined Aston Villa when he was 19 before going on to forge a huge successful career in England.
