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?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
