It was a strange transfer – Baston could barely get a sniff in South Wales after starting the season in the some of the form of his life, and joined a side trying to fend off relegation from the Premier League.
The 27-year-old had netted six goals in 20 Championship games for Swansea at the start of the campaign- the bulk of them coming in August – and has since made two substitute appearances for Villa.

Dean Smith’s side have lost their last six games in the Premier League. They currently sit in 19th-place of the table with two points separating them from safety, albeit with a game in hand.
Now a permanent figure at Villa, Baston was allowed to leave on a free transfer after signing from Atletico Madrid for £15 million in 2016.
Plenty of Swansea fans have since reacted to a video that Baston shared on Twitter on Friday, showing his goals for the club this season, and they seem to be missing their Spanish striker:
