Barcelona Youngster Heading for England

Barcelona Youngster Heading for England

It`s a fact of life that not every youngster who joins Barcelona will have a glittering career at the Camp Nou.

Some inevitably fail to match the expectation levels required.

Today it`s being reported by the English media vehicle, The 72, that Eric Mortes, a 19-year-old defender, will be joining the English Championship side, Aston Villa, on a free transfer.

Mortes is a graduate of the La Masia academy and is more than capable of playing as either a centre-back, a right-back or just in front of the back-line.

During his time with Barcelona, Mortes has made 13 appearances for the U19 side and scored just once.

Mortes current contract expires this month and with it being highly doubtful it will be renewed, Aston Villa have snuck in to offer the player a career in England.

Here at Vital Barcelona, we wish Eric all the best in English football.
