The London-born defender played 25 league games last season when Villa narrowly avoided relegation, but his performance in this campaign caught the attention of some of the big hitters and led to calls for a call-up to England.
After taking the time to adjust in his first season in the top flight, he has formed a formidable partnership with Tyrone Mings at the heart of Villa’s defense of this campaign.
Konsa has also scored two goals this season after establishing a solid starting position.
