Burnley sign Aston Villa striker on loan

Burnley have signed Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso on loan for the rest of the season, according to the BBC

The 20-year-old forward has scored one goal in 11 league appearances this season for Villa, but has seen opportunities limited due to competition up-front with Gabriel Agbonlahor, Emile Heskey and new January signing Darren Bent above him in the pecking-order.

The move is a signficant boost to Burnley, who are looking to achieve promotion from the Championship this year, a goal that looked less likely at the weekend when they lost Charlie Austin with a shoulder injury.

The England U21 international is in the Burnley squad for Tuesday night’s trip to Hull City.
