The hardworking midfielder has clearly impressed his manager already and he will only get better as the season progresses.
McGinn has done really well to handle the step up to the Championship and it will be interesting to see if he can guide his team to promotion eventually.
If he can maintain his current level of performances, he could be a real asset for Steve Bruce this season.
McGinn was a top target for Scottish champions Celtic this summer but he chose to join Aston Villa instead. So far, it has proven to be an ideal move for all parties.
