It certainly turned into an interesting January transfer window for Aston Villa fans as we saw the arrivals of Lucas Digne, Philippe Coutinho, Calum Chambers and Robin Olsen, but with an already lengthy loan list, we saw plenty of late departures for additional experience on deadline day.

A bit late this month, but some of these lads are making a real impact further down the pyramid.

Beginning with those who remained out on loan as January ticked by.

31-year-old goalkeeper Lovre Kalinic had again returned to Hajduk Split for the season. He has 19 starting appearances to his name so far, with nine clean sheets.

Fellow goalkeeper, and highly rated youngster, Akos Onodi headed out to Bromsgrove Sporting who ply their trade in the Southern League Premier Division Central. The loan is described as β€˜long’ – whatever that might mean. The 20-year-old stopper made 18 starting appearances across all competitions but it’s looked for a while like he had returned to us.

Midfielder Finn Azaz was actually a summer capture from West Bromwich Albion, and he immediately headed out to League Two side Newport County for the year. The 21-year-old has made 22 starting appearances so far, with another eight showings from the bench. He opened his goalscoring account in September’s clash with Barrow, added a second in October’s 5-0 victory over Stevenage and picked up his third in a 2-1 defeat of Port Vale.

Versatile defender Seb Revan headed out for his first taste of life on loan and joined Grimsby Town for the remainder of the campaign. The 18-year-old made his starting debut for them at the end of August in a scoreless draw with Stockport County and he made three starting appearances, with a further four starts from the substitutes bench. Having been recalled in January, he headed back out to Hereford, making his debut in their defeat to Gateshead and he’s made seven appearances in total so far.

Promising right back Kaine Kessler Hayden headed out to Swindon Town for a spell in League Two. The 19-year-old talent had a lively time. 19 starting appearances, two substitute showings, three yellow cards, a red card, he won a penalty on his debut and opened his goalscoring account in December’s victory over Walsall, as well as putting in a fantastic showing against Manchester City in the FA Cup.

Having been recalled after the City game, he headed back out to MK Dons and he made his debut for them against Fleetwood Town.

Very highly rated youngster Louie Barry headed to League One side Ipswich Town for the campaign, and the 18-year-old made four starts, with two substitute showings. He was recalled in January and headed back out to Swindon Town, where he’s already made one start and two substitute showings.

18-year-old striker Brad Young made the switch to League Two side Carlisle United and he boasts eleven starts, and nine substitute appearances so far. He opened his goalscoring account for them in the EFL Trophy with a brace against Everton’s Under 21 side, and he’s since added a third to his tally. He was recalled in January.

20-year-old Tyreik Wright headed to League Two Salford City as he looks to build on his experience last season with Walsall. The versatile attacker made eight starting appearances, with ten showings off the bench. He opened his goalscoring account in their game with Newport County at the end of August, but he was also recalled in January and headed back out to Colchester United where he’s already made two starts, with one substitute showing and he also opened is club account in their draw with Carlisle.

Midfielder Arjan Raikhy headed to National League outfit Stockport County, and the 19-year-old made five starting appearances, with three substitute showings to his name. He was very impressive in their FA Cup clash with Bolton which Aunty Beeb screened back on November. He was recalled in January and headed back out to Grimsby Town. To date, he’s made four starting appearances with a further showing from the bench.

Wesley did continue his rehabilitation from Ben Mee’s horrific assault back at Club Brugge. He joined them until the end of the campaign, but only made one start and four substitute showings. Having been recalled, he headed back out to Internacional and he’s already made three starts with an additional showing from the bench, and opened his club account for them.

Conor Hourihane also left on loan again, this time for Bramall Lane and Sheffield United. He’s with them until the end of the campaign wherein his contract will come to a natural end. He’s made eleven starts and eight substitute appearances so far.

Versatile 20-year-old defender Mungo Bridge headed out to French Championnat National side FC Annercy, and made two substitute appearances for them. He was recalled in January.

Freddy Guilbert headed back to French side Strasbourg for another season long loan and he’s made 17 starts with three substitute showing so far.

21-year-old Dominic Revan made the switch out to League Two side Northampton Town as he looked to build on his experience last season with Weymouth. He only made four starts, with two substitute appearances. He was recalled in January.

So, to the newbies who headed out and in no particular order.

20-year-old Jaden Philogene-Bidace headed to Stoke City and he’s already racked up three starts, two substitute showings and opened his club account in their victory over Swansea City.

Anwar El Ghazi headed to Goodison Park and Everton and so far he’s made his substitute debut for them.

Cameron Archer penned a new deal and headed for Deepdale and Preston North End. The 20-year-old has made starting appearances, with two showings from the bench, scoring three times.

Keinan Davis headed across the Midlands for a spell with Nottingham Forest. The 24-year-old has made seven starts with one substitute showing, scoring twice and putting in a great performance against Leicester City in the FA Cup.

The lesser known Chukwuemeka, 20-year-old Caleb, headed to Scottish Premiership side Livingston and so far he’s made one start, with four substitute showings.

Aaron Ramsey headed out for a spell with Cheltenham Town and so far he’s made two starts, with two further showings from the bench.

Matt Targett made a swift exit to Newcastle United and he made his starting debut in their clash with Everton.

Goalkeeper Jed Steer also made a late switch out and his destination was Luton Town. He made his starting debut for them in their FA Cup victory over Cambridge – where he kept a clean sheet.

Fellow stopper Filip Marschall headed out to Gateshead, the youngster has already made three appearances for them.

As he looks to get himself back to full fitness, Trezeguet headed to Turkish side Basaksehir. He made his debut for them last Saturday, grabbing himself an assist in the process.

I believe that’s everyone.
