Nathan Delfouneso has been on loan at Burnley since early March and scored just five minutes into his debut at Hull on the day he signed. He's not scored since and has recently lost his place in the side, but manager Eddie Howe has nothing but praise for the Aston Villa striker.
"He's had to get used to how we play and we've had to get used to the runs that he makes. There are signs that we are beginning o get an understanding with him.
"He's a fantastic lad with a great attitude and wants to do well. He's an excellent player and has real potential. Hopefully with the remaining games it will click into gear.
"He can do a little bit of everything. He's technically very good, he can receive the ball to feet. He can also run in behind, he's athletic and quick, but developing an understanding with the players around him is sometimes difficult and it takes time."
