Andre Jay Green (born 26 July 1998) is an English professional footballer who plays as a winger for Portsmouth, on loan from Aston Villa. He has represented England from under-16 to under-19 level.[3]

Club career[edit]

Aston Villa[edit]

Green joined Aston Villa at the age of nine and progressed through the club's academy. He made his club and Premier League debut on 13 March 2016, coming off the bench for Jordan Veretout in a 2–0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur. In doing so he became the fifth youngest player to ever represent the club, behind only Jimmy Brown, Rushian Hepburn-Murphy, Gareth Barry and Jonathan Bewers.[4]

Following Aston Villa's relegation the season before, Green was linked with a move to host of Premier League clubs but opted to sign a new three-year contract with The Villans in August 2016.[5] Green made his first league start for the club at home against Preston in January 2017. He scored his first goal for Aston Villa against Norwich City on 19 August 2017.[6]

Loan to Portsmouth[edit]

After struggling with an injury that kept him out of much of the 2017-18 season, Green found it difficult to get into the Aston Villa first team and on 29 August 2018, he signed for Portsmouth on a season long loan, dropping down a division to League 1.[7]

International career[edit]

Green has represented England up to Under 20 level.[8]
