</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">

Early indicators about "The Fonz" are that he has the ability to eclipse anything done by Darius Vassell, Luke Moore or Gabriel Agbonlahor. That is to say eclipse players who have played for England in World Cups, who have moved around the Premier League for significant sums of money and who are among the top scorers in England's top division.

</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">Already pushing for a start in O'Neill's Champions League chasing outfit, Delfouneso is equipped with everything a centre forward could ever wish for. He stands at 6ft 1" tall, he moves at great pace, he has wonderful natural skill and he has only just turned 18.

But wait, it gets better.

</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">The prolific reserve team marksman also has the one vital ingredient that sets him even further apart from his peers. That ingredient is the touch of a natural goal scorer in the mould of a Robbie Fowler, a Gary Lineker or even a Jimmy Greaves.

</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">This gift is something that cannot be taught or bought but rather it is something certain players are blessed with and those who have followed Delfouneso's career to this point will be cautiously optimistic that the young striker has it in abundance.

</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">A brilliant left foot volley on his first senior start in the UEFA Cup against MSK Zilina in December 2008 and an instinctive finish to redirect a miss-hit Moustapha Salifou shot just weeks later in the same competition away against Hamburg caught everyone's attention.

</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">

A deft diving header in early February against Doncaster in an FA Cup replay confirmed what many dared to believe - this player is something very very special.

</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">What he achieves in his Aston Villa career is down to application and luck with injuries. He has all the tools to be a genuinely outstanding Premiership and International player.</span>

<span style="font-family:Verdana">Seen on a couple of forums and the not reliable site of fans fc that we taking Nathan on loan for the season. Clough did say he wanted a young hungry striker - and he sounds good.</span><span style="font-family:Verdana">

Kin ell have you read this board description? 'genuine transfer rumours only.'

Don't start posting rumours from that site we'l have 20 new rumours a day, you do realise any Tom, Dick or Harry can post the rumours. I even got one on there which made a couple of Forest forums.
