Nathan Delfouneso accepts Villa career over

Nathan Delfouneso accepts his time with Aston Villa is coming to an end.

The striker is on loan at Coventry and out of contract at Villa Park in June but is yet to hear anything from the club.

"I knew the situation when I went back (after his Blackpool loan ended in January). I would have loved to have the opportunity to prove I could play," Delfouneso told the Express & Star.

"Over the years a lot of players have come through and people might have questioned what I was doing and my attitude. That's never been the case I have always looked to do my best in everything I do.

"I'm not going to put blame on anyone but they will have their say and I'll have mine. I loved my time at Villa.

"When I came through a lot was said about me and I would have loved to do that with Villa. In the end I didn't get the opportunity which would have helped me case."
