Smith praises new arrival as Villa snap up Wolves defender

Date published: Monday 7th January 2019 8:15

Aston Villa have signed Wolves defender Kortney Hause on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy.

The 23-year-old was on the books at Wycombe before making the move to Molineux in 2014 and has won 10 England Under-21 caps.

He had a loan spell at Gillingham in the 2014-15 season, scoring one goal in 14 league appearances before returning to his parent club and making 17 Championship appearances.

In total, he has scored two goals in 67 league appearances for Wolves but has yet to feature in the Premier League. His two appearances this season both came in the EFL Cup.

Villa head coach Dean Smith told the club’s official website: “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.”
