Burnley have snapped up Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso.

Delfouneso has joined Burnley on loan until the end of the season, the Clarets have confirmed.

The 20-year-old has found first-team opportunities harder to come by at Villa Park since the January arrival of Darren Bent.

He has now agreed to join the Clarets, who have been on the lookout for a new frontman after Charlie Austin was ruled out for the rest of the campaign with a dislocated shoulder.
