Villa call back Bannan

28 April 2011 01:30
Aston Villa have recalled midfielder Barry Bannan from his loan spell at Leeds. The 21-year-old Scotland international has made seven appearances for Leeds since arriving on March 7 but has started the last three games on the substitutes' bench. Leeds boss Simon Grayson said: "We always knew there was a possibility Barry could be recalled and I understand why Villa want him back. "I'd like to thank them for allowing him to come to us. I hope he enjoyed his time here and we wish Barry and Villa all the best for the rest of the season." Villa still have four games to go in the Barclays Premier League and are seven points clear of the relegation zone.
