Andi Weimann bagged four goals for Villa in 2014-15 - but his appearances mainly came off the bench.

Weimann had rescued Villa the previous term when his double against Hull in the final home game had secured safety.

And he began this past season in the same sort of form.

He scored the winner in the 1-0 opening day victory over Stoke at the Britannia Stadium and then another in the 3-1 home win over the Tigers.

Weimann then scored the club's first goal following a five-game barren spell for the team but Tottenham snatched victory in that game courtesy of a late Harry Kane free-kick.

His other strike of the season was a fine effort, a well-worked goal in the 2-1 victory over Bournemouth in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

His appearances on the pitch declined somewhat following the arrival of new boss Tim Sherwood.

Weimann was an unused sub for every game from the FA Cup semi-final win over Liverpool - until the FA Cup final when he failed to make the final squad.

Weimann, a product of the academy, made a name for himself in the 2011-12 season - and also produced two of the club's most memorable moments.

The Austrian striker announced his arrival on the senior stage with a dramatic last-gasp winner against Fulham after coming on a substitute.

And his second goal, a long-range rocket against Stoke, earned him the goal of the season award.

He also won young player of the season at the annual awards dinner.

Long-term mentor Kevin MacDonald offer the Vienna-born striker his first taste of senior football during a spell as caretaker boss at the start of the 2011-12 campaign.

MacDonald introduced Weimann as a late sub in the opening day victory over West Ham.
