Andreas Weimann: This is proof I have improved this season

Aston Villa front man Andreas Weimann feels that he is developing as a player.

Aston Villa man Andreas Weimann believes that he has improved as a player over the season so far. 

The 23-year-old has been a regular selection in Paul Lambert's side and Weimann believes that he has proven how versatile he can be during the campaign to date. 

Weimann is naturally a central striker, but he has been regularly utilised on the wings by Lambert and he feels this is evidence of how far he has progressed as a player. 

"I'd like to think I've developed over those games," he said to the official Villa website

"This season, I've been asked to play in quite a few positions and that shows that I've improved as a player."

Despite Weimann's progression, there are still areas of improvement that Villa supporters would like to see in his game.

The Austrian international is a tireless worker for the team, but his lack of a cutting edge can be frustrating at times.

Weimann played his 100th Premier League game for the club against Sunderland in their last outing, but he only has 17 goals to his name during that time and this record will need to be increased if he is ever to fulfil his potential.
