Villa striker makes Clarets loan move

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso has signed for Burnley on loan until the end of the season, the npower Championship side have confirmed.

The 20-year-old has found first-team opportunities harder to come by at Villa Park since the January arrival of Darren Bent.

He has now agreed to join the Clarets, who have been on the lookout for a new frontman after Charlie Austin was ruled out for the rest of the campaign with a dislocated shoulder.

Delfouneso, who has made 16 appearances for Villa this term, is a regular for the England Under-21s, with many tipping him to earn full international honours in future.


The Birmingham-born frontman has been named Supporters' and Players' Young Player of the Year for the last two seasons at Villa.

Should the paperwork go through in time, he could make his debut for Burnley in tonight's clash with Hull.
