Bannan recalled by Aston Villa Tim Hodge April 28, 2011 Leeds United 12 Comments On loan Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan has been recalled by his parent club. He made seven first team appearances for Leeds and looked impressive whenever he took to the field. In the last few weeks however he had been left out of the starting line-up by manager Simon Grayson much to the confusion of many fans. His introduction in the second half of the home match against Watford saw him notch up assists for both Leeds goals. Aston Villa had a recall option for the time the loan was arranged and with Bannan not getting as many games as people would have expected, it’s no surprise he’s been recalled for the remainder of the Villains’ Premier League campaign. He looks a classy player and should go far, so we wish him all the best in the future.
