Burnley have boosted their striking options by bringing in Aston Villa youngster Nathan Delfouneso on loan for the rest of the season.

Delfouneso arrives at Turf Moor to improve Eddie Howe's squad after January signing Charlie Austin was ruled out for the campaign with a dislocated shoulder.

England Under 21 international Delfouneso has scored three goals in 16 appearances for Villa this season and has been allowed out to gain further first-team experience by Gerard Houllier.

With record signing Darren Bent leading the Villa line, and with only Premier League survival to play for this season, Delfouneso's opportunities in the coming weeks were likely to be limited.

Providing the paperwork is finalised in time, the 20-year-old is in line to make his Burnley debut against Hull City on Tuesday evening.
