The 20-year-old, who spent five months on loan in Spain last season at Real Union, is versatile, and he can play on the wing, as a number 10 or as a number eight.

He made two appearances in Spain before missing the rest of the campaign after breaking his wrist.

O'Reilly played in all three of Villa's EFL Trophy games scoring in his side's 2-2 draw at Sutton United.
