Watford have signed Aston Villa youngster Andreas Weimann on loan until the end of the season. Hornets boss Malky Mackay watched the 19-year-old striker score against Burton this week and moved to snap him up until May. The Austrian Under-21 international made his Villa debut as a substitute against West Ham on the opening day of the season but has since been sidelined with an ankle injury. Villa boss Gerard Houllier has a 24-hour option to recall the player.
