Libor Kozak movedto B6 from Italian outfit Lazio in September 2013.

During his five year stay in Rome, the forward was loaned out to Serie B Bresica in order to attain playing time.

The new year of 2011 was one to remember for the Czech, he scored three goals and national boss Michal Bilek made a special visit to watch him play at the Stadio Olympico.

In 2008, the striker had trials at then Premier League side Portsmouth but nothing materialised.

The 2012-13 campaign saw the striker emerge as the club's top-scorer in the Europa League.

He made his Villa debut in last season's home defeat to Newcastle United.

Three weeks after signing, he scored his first goal in claret and blue in a single goal victory over Norwich City, shortly after replacing Christian Benteke.

His header against Cardiff City in November 2013 contributed to a 2-0 win and in the following month, he scored the second goal in a dramatic 3-2 victory at Southampton.

Kozak's season was cut short at the turn of the year when he suffered a broken leg following a training ground collision.

With just 14 appearances to date, he will aim to kick-start once back to full health.
