New Boy Delfouneso Scores in Hull Debut

New Boy Delfouneso Scores in Hull Debut

With the Clarets striker situation on critical, Aston Villa's 20 year old England Under-21 international Nathan Delfouneso today joined Burnley on loan until the end of the season and found he was immediately in the starting eleven for tonight`s match at Hull City after replacing Chris Iwelumo in Eddie Howe`s only change.

Not only that but within 5 minutes he had scored to put the Clarets 1-0 up at the KC Stadium and that remained the score at half-time when this article was written. Good start then for the new boy!

Delfouneso came though Villa`s youth academy and has made the occasional appearance for their first team after making his debut in a UEFA Cup game in the 2008/9 season. Delfouneso made his league debut in March 2009 against Tottenham Hotspur coming on as a second half substitute for Gabriel Agbonlahor. He has made 24 first-team apperances for Villa scoring a couple of goals.

Although a recognised striker, Delfouneso has also played a number of times on the wing.

Absolutely criminal we've loaned him out, if he gets suspended or injured before the 28 days I will be annoyed! Hope we recall him asap. Same goes for Bannan!

Nathan Delfouneso (Burnley) and Barry Bannan (Leeds) both have clauses in their contracts meaning Aston Villa can recall either player after 28 days. Both are deals until the end of the season but both can be recalled so they are guaranteed to stay for the remainder of the season. Villa only have 2 games over this time period of 28 days but should we get another injury nightmare then we'll be recalling the players. Both are good enough to be playing for us so it wouldn't shock me to see them come back should a few injuries occur which knowing Villa this is year is extremely likely! I hope we recall them anyway, can't believe these two have been loaned out. Awful decision by our manager for me!
