Loads of Aston Villa fans have been reflecting on the week’s Championship action, and they already think Kortney Hause was a wasted signing.
Hause was one of five January signings for Dean Smith, but of those five only Tyrone Mings has left a positive impression so far.
Hause joined on loan from Wolves for the remainder of the season, and the 23 year-old’s versatility will have appealed to Smith and the club.
Hause, like Mings, can play centre back or left back, and was chosen on the flank for Wednesday’s clash against Brentford.
Smith’s side were utterly dominated though, as the Bees had more of the ball, created more chances and defended better, eventually grabbing their deserved winner through a late Neal Maupay strike.
While no one in a Villa shirt covered themselves in glory, Hause was particularly poor, completing just 62 per cent of his passes.
The youngster’s lack of ability on the ball is a huge problem when playing as a full-back rather than through the middle, and fans are bashing the signing.
