Nicklas Helenius sends farewell message to Aston Villa fans on Twitter

Nicklas Helenius has left Premier League outfit Aston Villa on a permanent basis.

Nicklas Helenius has taken to social networking site Twitter to bid farewell to Aston Villa.

The 24-year-old has left the Premier League outfit after playing on loan for his former club Aalborg BK during the 2014-15 campaign.

The striker joined Villa from Aalborg in the summer of 2013 for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal, as reported by BBC Sport at the time.

Helenius became then Villa manager Paul Lambert's fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Aleksandar Tonev, Jores Okore and Leandro Bacuna.

Much was expected of Helenius, but the Denmark international proved to be nothing but a massive disappointment at Villa Park.

In the summer of 2014, the Dane was loaned back to his former club AaB for the 2014-15 campaign.

Helenius could make just six substitute appearances for the Villans, scoring once against Sheffield United in the FA Cup.

The Dane has now taken to Twitter to bid farewell to the Villa supporters, some of whom have had their say on his performances for the Villans.
