Boss Hogg. Villa man joins on loan

Boss Hogg. Villa man joins on loan

Villa have officially confirmed that Pompey have loaned 22-year-old midfielder Jonathan Hogg until the end of the season.

Having recently extended his contract with Villa their manager Gerard Houllier sees this as an ideal opportunity for continued development, as he told The Villa Site: 'Jonathan has competed very well in the games he has played this season and this loan move will greatly assist in his career development.'

The guy has suffered some serious knee problems from the sounds of it although he is fighting back and is thought to have impressed with his limited outings for Villa.

This was also published on The Villa Site: 'The midfield terrier had to fly out to the USA on more than one occasion to see expert surgeon Dr Richard Steadman as he battled to overcome the frustrating career setback.

He spent 11 months out of the game after suffering the cruciate ligament heartbreak against Tottenham in a March 2008 reserve game.

He then impressed in the following pre-season before being injured again with the same knee issue, sustained this time in an accidental training ground collision with right-back Luke Young.

He was then absent for a further five months before battling back to full fitness again.

owever, the youngster took his chance in the absence of experienced central stars like Nigel Reo-Coker and Stiliyan Petrov earlier this season.

He impressed the claret and blue faithful with his all-action displays and enthusiasm to get around the pitch and hunt down possession.
'

I cannot say I know much, if anything at all about Hogg - I have heard of him though - if I am honest, although I welcome him to Fratton.

I would not have thought his registration went through in time for him to feature tonight though?

    Good player is Hogg...looked quite assured when he was thrown in over the christmas period when we were having a nightmare with injuries. Anyone who plays centre midfield against Man Utd alongside a 20 year old in the premier league and helps earn his side a draw can't be doing too badly. I'm sure he'll do a good job for you

    Cheers V4EU. Hopefully he'll be one Villa player still with a chance of getting another game abroad in Europe this season. Wales counts surely?

    I guess that puts off Norris and is the end of Hughes and Brown. Seems the player did well but if his knee is that fragile; what silent Eastleigh training ground do for him. As for playing tonight the transfer was certainly on Villa sites before 1pm and my understanding is that is the deadline and 5pm for an extension. If he's here in time and fit to play is another matter

    well done another player that stays clear of injuries is most welcome. i know we cant be too choosey but i would rather have more mediocre but can stay out of the treatment room. guarantee he wont last the season

    Ummm, he looked like the ghost of Sammy Igoe. Seems we are taking a risk here. A young inexperienced smallish chap & a very vital position. Not quite a Diarra type player. I obviously wish him well but I thought we would have picked up some battle hardened pro, we are going to have to fight our way out of the mess we are in, a relegation battle.
