After disappearing to the bench after Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier singled him out after a bad performance against Manchester City in December, Eric Lichaj has finally re-appeared. But the next time he sees the field, it will be with Leeds United.
The 22-year-old right back is headed to Leeds United on a month-long loan as they look for cover for their normal starter, Paul Connolly, as he battles a hamstring injury.
This will be Lichaj’s third loan stint over the last 1.5 seasons, playing with Lincoln City and Leyton Orient in 2009-10.
But Lichaj will have a chance to see the field again, which is a good thing, with Leeds United having six games during his stay at Elland Road.
