Yesterday Aston Villa announced that Libor Kozak will be out for the remainder of the season following a broken leg during training. It was tackle from Ciaran Clark that has ruled out the Czech striker until next season. Kozak just recently joined Aston Villa and has scored 4 goals for Aston Villa so far, he surely hasn’t stood out as one of the best performances at Aston Villa. However, I reckon he hasn’t done too badly, he has scored some vital goals for Aston Villa and will surely be missed.
Prior to this injury, Lambert had lined up a few players to sign during the January Transfer Window but it appears a striker may make way instead of either an attacking midfielder or centre-back. Man. City’s John Guidetti has been first player linked with loan move to Villa Park. But this will surely mean that Benteke is definitely not going any where this transfer window.
I still feel as though Helenius should be given all 90 minutes to impress against Sheffield United. If he does well, I reckon it would be more beneficial for Aston Villa if Lambert gave Helenius some game time instead of a young City product. Unless of course Aston Villa can arrange a transfer fee at the end of the loan deal. Because Guidetti is a fantastic striker and, should we sell Benteke in the summer, Guidetti would be a great purchase.
