Promising teenager snapped up from academy which produced current first team stars Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana

Aston Villa have snapped up a promising teenager from Southampton’s highly-rated academy.
 
Isaac Nehemie confirmed on his Twitter account that he has signed professional terms with the claret and blues.
 
The 18-year-old left-sided player’s full-time scholarship arrangement at Saints was due to expire this summer.
 
Nehemie was originally on the books of Crystal Palace, but was picked up by Sparsholt football academy near Winchester on an academy programme combining football and academic studies.
 
Confirming his move to Villa on his Twitter profile @_IsaacN , he went on to say: “Been a proper emotional day! But guess it’s the start of something new hopefullu thanks to everyone that has supported me!”
 
Villa’s Bodymoor Heath academy emerged as the best in the country during an audit under the Barclays Premier League Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) in November 2012.
 
Southampton’s academy is also highly-rated having produced current first team stars Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana and former Saints stars Gareth Bale, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.

Suppose have to ask question, Why? was he released by Palace and then Southampton.. 

Lets hope he isn't out on the town every weekend? As he would fit right in here with some youngsters

Southampton just don't release anyone, they take kids on who want to learn, and improve and work towards qualifications if they don't make it in football, hence why the set up they have there, development there is streets ahead of ours. As have to have discipline.

He was released by Palace, he then went to a non-league club that helps youth players to get trials etc, he then got a trial for Soton and did well so your last point is irrelevant as they wouldn't have signed him in the first place. Lets not forget players are let go and re-signed by other clubs numerous times. We let Daniel Sturridge go who then went onto Coventry before moving to Man City.

happens all the time Roy Keane, Ian Wright, Drogba were never picked up by youth teams, others like Platt, Ribery and Beardsley got released and had to build their way up. teams make mistakes sometimes

Just look at the list of graduates that have emerged from Southampton's academy. Who have we ever produced other than mid-table squad players? Lets hope our title of 'best in the country' starts to bare fruit at some point.

Agbonlahor, Gary Cahill,

Yep i suppose you could say those two.

However, despite apparently having one of the best academies we still don't produce enough top performers at senior level, relative to other teams in the league.

I wonder if its the way we integrate them into the senior team. Perhaps we don't have the quality at senior level for the youngsters to learn from and develop.

Did Southampton?

 

The best explanation is catchment area. The Southampton prodigies were spotted where there were relatively few other big academy scouts.

 

Most Premier League clubs are concentrated in the north west or from London. There are very few in the south.

 

Southampton were competing with Portsmouth and Reading. Back when these kids were scouted, Southampton were the biggest name of these clubs, they are the post- Le Tissier generation
