Late yesterday evening it was confirmed that Aston Villa had signed Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Kortney Hause on a loan spell until the end of the current 2018/19 campaign.

The 23-year-old came through Wycombe Wanderers’ youth setup, making a total of 31 appearances for them, scoring twice, before he made the move to the Molineux back in January 2014 and in his time at our now ‘wannabe’ rivals, he’s made 74 starting appearances, with a further six showings from the substitutes bench. He’s also chipped in with two goals and has two EFL Cup appearances to his name this season.

He featured four times for them last year when they won the Championship title and he has been one of the casualties of their spending when it comes to game time given how highly rated he has been for the last few years.

It should be a solid capture from where we sit in many ways based on what I know of the lad.

It also marks a significant turn in our transfer business, as although it is a loan deal, it’s being reported that Chief Executive Officer Christian Purslow only sanctioned the move once it was agreed we had a buy clause in place if all works out so we take care of ourselves, and not other clubs when it comes to the future.

Speaking to the Official Site, our gaffer said of his capture.

“We’re very pleased to have brought in someone with Kortney’s quality. With experience of playing at this level, he’ll be an important addition to our defensive options.”

The centre-half has been given the number 30 shirt for the remainder of the campaign.

  • Wannabes! That’s all you have been, most of your honours came before the 50s, a lot in the late eighties early nineties when the league’s weren’t so big, you are 1982 vile but now you are were you belong struggling to get out of the championship.
    I feel sorry for Hause taking a backwards step in his career when he needs to be at a good club and not a club were it and it’s fans have always “lorded” themselves over the rest when in fact they are pheasants.

    • haha. That’s one of the most ironic posts I’ve ever seen on here. Not done a fat lot since the late 50’s yourselves but because Villa have fallen below Wolves for the first time in 40 odd years they’re all suddenly coming out the woodwork. I didn’t even realise there was any real animosity between the clubs until the Dingles started getting over excited last season. Its all a plastic one way rivalry from your end’ you chump. When our local rivals have been as piss poor as they have for decades, we have had the opportunity to lord it over them

  • oh my poor dingle little fish.
    you really have taken the bait and are biting back big time.
    let’s be honest only one club has been shining the light for a shit football region even if we haven’t won much as late as you write.
    we have still won more in that time than you wannabes as well as the 2 other tin pot clubs in the region put together. Even our failures in finals is a day out you will never see.
    yes you have your 10 mins of fame now, so enjoy it while it lasts as we enjoyed being the beacon you were all under for well, always.
    The footie world knows the name Aston Villa but shakes its head over the knowledge of your existence aswell as sandwell and small heath.
    forever in our shadow my golden sorry yellow wolves cousin.Up the Vile.
