Jonathan Kodjia has been a man on the move during this month. He swapped Aston Villa for Al Gharafa in Qatar after falling our favour at Villa Park.
The Ivorian striker had been linked with a few clubs in the Championship but he eventually made the move overseas.
After falling down Dean Smith’s pecking order, Kodjia was allowed to move to pastures new.
The 30-year-old scored twice in the Carabao Cup but failed to register a goal in the Premier League.
Yesterday Kodjia made his debut for his new team and he made quite an impact for them.
After opening his account from the penalty spot in the 65th minute he went onto complete a 21-minute hat-trick.
Al Gharafa secured a 4-2 win and on yesterday’s form he looks like taking the Qatar Stars League by storm,
His record at Aston Villa wasn’t brilliant. He was largely used as a substitute during his time at the club and claimed 31 goals from 106 outings.
Consistency dogged him and following yesterday’s dream start, Villa fans have been discussing Kodjia on Twitter.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Villa supporters who were quick to debate Kodjia after his hat-trick:
Villa desperate for a striker, let Kodjia go and he scores a hat trick on his debut ????

@J_Kodjia with a sensational hat trick on his debut.
Smashed the penalty to start it, and I don't know what to say about the third!
He's going to enjoy that league.
Class, Jimmy. They're lucky to have you, and #avfc is unlucky to lose you!
