Aston Villa news – Ross Barkley took over Dean Smith’s vacant midfielder after joining Chelsea on loan from Chelsea

Frank Lampard Tells Dean Smith Exactly What To Expect From Aston Villa’s New Boy Ross Barkley

Smith managed to get his man with Barkley to sign a one-season loan deal at Villa Park earlier today to become the club’s fifth summer signing

Barkley, 26, has been an unused substitute in Chelsea’s last two games and has started only one game this season – a 6-0 Carabao Cup win over Barnsley in which he scored

The England international has fallen down the pecking order in Chelsea midfield after the summer arrivals of Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech

But it’s clear that a player of Barkley’s class and quality has the potential to thrive at Villa

Explaining Barkley’s talents in an interview last season, Lampard said: « His shot, right and left foot, is as good technically as I see it on the training ground Also his ability to overtake someone in advanced areas in midfield, his skill It is well within his reach

« He shouldn’t get caught up in where he is, what he can be, what he might have been, only how he trains every day When you see that you see that is a very good player for us and can be that midfielder, and not only that: he can play, he can run, he can tackle, he can do a lot of things »

Lampard himself has admitted that Barkley is a trusted player who needs to play regularly to bring out the best in him – and he will do so under Smith at Villa Park

« All of our midfielders have been absent at times, but Ross was probably out for a longer time, with a serious injury that lasted for six weeks

« At the start of the season, with Ross not coming in, he can look at himself and say he probably could have done better Ross took this in the most positive way he could. He worked hard and he’s got his nose in the team

« He needs confidence as a player, I believe, so trying to play him and give him minutes is always going to help with confidence »
