Everyone at Northampton will undoubtedly wish the youngster well as he embarks on his Premier League adventure and many people will be watching with interest to see how he gets on at Villa Park moving forwards.
The Cobblers have covered themselves well in the event of his departure by bringing in Kion Etete from Spurs, who has already hit the ground running by scoring two goals in his first two games for the club.
Losing their most talented young players has become the reality for a lot of clubs that are lower down the Football League pyramid and the key nowadays is to make sure that you tie them down to longer term deals.
As for Northampton’s chances of getting promotion back to League One, they have done their chances no harm by getting off to a good start with an opening day victory over Port Vale before then following that up with a shock Carabao Cup win away at Championship Coventry City.
The early signs for the club look good and they will be confident heading forwards without Chukwuemeka at their disposal.
