Aston Villa finally have a Hause. After saving up (and no thanks to the Help-To-Buy scheme implemented by the Government who care so, so much about us), they are ready to join generation rent and borrow one from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Yes, after a week of speculation - Aston Villa have won the ‘battle’ to sign Kortney Hause on loan from Wolves. The centre-half/left-back will join and make a case for first team football under Head Coach Dean Smtih at Villa Park. As a left sided player, Hause will likely add some much needed balance to a Villa side who try hard to play the ball out from the back (which is harder when one or two defenders are not on good footing). All in all, this is good news, with Hause coming from a good footballing background not only from Wolves, but also from the England international youth setup.

Hause joins on an initial loan and has been one of Smith’s main targets in this transfer window. In his own words, Kortney is delighted to join a ‘big club’ in Aston Villa and by all accounts is hungry and raring to go.

Aston Villa can make the deal permanent if they choose. Kortney will have to make a scene on the pitch if that is to happen - but right now, Hause should find a place at Aston Villa on the left side of their defence as much-needed reinforcements.

Welcome Kortney!
