Nathan Delfouneso Signs Contract Extension with Aston Villa

The unofficial favorite picture of 7500 to Holte.

20-year-old striker Nathan Delfouneso has signed a contract extension with Aston Villa that will keep him with the club (ostensibly) through 2014. Fonz has shown moments of brilliance in limited time with the first team, but he has also shown moments of total bone-headedness. But what do you expect? He's a 20-year-old who is still learning the game at the highest level. If he can learn to control his shots a bit better, Delfouneso has the chance to be an excellent striker, as he has one of the more powerful boots I've seen. 

In terms of the transfer market, I have to imagine this means that rumors of Aston Villa trying to get Hugo Rodallega were incorrect or blown out of proportion. And, if they weren't, you can expect a fair amount of anger from many Villa fans I imagine. Say what you will about the present, but if Villa can keep themselves in the premiership, this will be a fearsome team in a few years. It almost makes waiting not so bad.
