Henri Lansbury

Player #904 for Aston Villa, Henri George Lansbury played as a midfielder for the club between 2016-17 and 2020-21 making 53 appearances and scoring 3 goals.

Lansbury was born in Enfield on 12 October 1990.

Villa had signed Lansbury on 20 January 2017 from Nottingham Forest for a fee of £3,060,000.

Henri made his competitive debut for Villa at the age of 26 in the 2-2 home draw with Preston North End on Saturday, 21 January 2017 and he went on to be a virtual ever present for the remainder of the season with 18 appearances including 1 as a substitute.

In the 2017-18 campaign however injury and form meant Lansbury made just 12 appearances, 5 as substitute, however he did hit his debut goal for Villa in the 1-1 away draw with Leeds United on Friday, 1 December 2017.

Lansbury added another goal in the 4-0 win over Ipswich Town on Saturday, 21 April 2018 and although he also contributed 3 assists 2017-18 proved a disappointing campaign after the promise shown in his debut season.

2018-19 saw a similar story with injury keeping Lansbury out of contention for much of the season. As a result he made just 5 appearances, 3 as substitute, across the whole campaign and didn’t add to his goal or assist tally.

With promotion to the Premier League secured it was expected that Lansbury would struggle to find first team opportunities even if fully fit however Dean Smith retained faith and regularly named Lansbury amongst the substitutes. Lansbury’s best showings in 2019-20 came in the EFL Cup with his 5 assists helping Villa to the their nine League Cup final however he also made Premier League appearances when called upon making 2 Premier League starts and 7 substitute appearances to go with his cup outings.

Lansbury however hadn’t been able to reproduce his cup form in the league or for a sustained period and could not hold onto a first team place.

For the 2020-21 season, Dean Smith omitted Lansbury from Villa’s 25-man Premier League squad further limiting his opportunities and as a result the club offered to buy Lansbury out of his contract, Lansbury declined and remained with the club ahead of his contract end in June 2021.

Lansbury left Villa for Championship side Bristol City on a free transfer on 29 January 2021, bringing an ultimately underwhelming four year spell to an end.

Reflecting on his time with Villa Lansbury recalled “(It) didn’t play out how everyone thought it would.

"Off the back of a good season at Forest I had a couple of big injuries, it just didn’t really flow.

"I’m grateful of everyone there and what they did for me. It’s a massive club and getting promotion with them was a great experience.”
