Can Aston Villa Revive The Career Of This Loan Signing From West Ham United?

Aston Villa have started their new season in the Championship on a low note, having won their only match against Norwich City, while losing two and drawing the other two out of their fixtures. Their performance so far has been far from good and the Villa faithful are in dire need of some inspiration to get their season back on track.

The present man in charge at the Villa Park, Steve Bruce, have been trying his level best to get some good players into the side, who can be able to stabilize the situation and turn the tables for his side in the forthcoming matches. One such player, who might turn out to be a very important entity in the Aston Villa squad for the rest of the season, arrived at the club on a deadline day transfer deal in the form attacking midfielder Robert Snodgrass from Premier League club West Ham United.

The 29-year-old had a depressing season since his arrival at the London Stadium in last January from the then Premier League side, Hull City.

He was not able to score on a single occasion out of the 15 matches in which he featured for the Hammers in last season and compelled his club to let him go on loan to the Championship, where he will be playing for Aston Villa throughout the new season and will look to show glimpses of his form which made him a star at his former club Hull City.

Playing for the Tigers in the Premier League, Snodgrass featured in 56 matches for them, scoring on 14 occasions to give the advantage to his team. He turned out to be a wily customer with his swift footwork and brilliant runs down the right-wing and also established himself as one of the best attackers in the Premier League.

He also laid off 10 assists throughout his tenure with Hull City and was eventually bagged by the Hammers, who were in dire need of an able attacker to give an edge to their front line.

However, the next few months till the end of the last season have been nothing less than disastrous for the Scottish winger as he found himself away from the action for most of the term. His loan move, though, might turn out to be a lifeline for him in order to revive his career, given that he performs well for the Championship club when the season resumes after the end of the ongoing international break.
