Footballers are having to be innovative to keep themselves occupied during the coronavirus lockdown with no matches played for a month and uncertainty over when the game will return.
And Aston Villa defender Kortney Hause has used the time to make his first foray into the music business, releasing a song titled ‘Worth It’.
The 24-year-old is generously donating all proceeds from the song, which is available from Friday, to the NHS and the battle against coronavirus.

Speaking to The Sun, Hause said: ‘I went down the RnB route because I just feel it suits the tone of my voice best. I’m the first member of my family to release a single.
‘The idea for Worth It came because I live with one of my good friends who is a music producer. He works with my younger brother Rio and he finds loads of instrumentals and great beats on YouTube and stuff.
‘He’d play them to me whenever I could get in the studio and now, with everything going on with the coronavirus, I had a bit more time on my hands.
‘He rounded up a few beats and the ‘Worth It’ instrumental was just something I took to.’
Hause has made 11 appearances in the Premier League this season with Villa struggling
Hause joined Villa from Wolves for £3million in the summer of 2019 after winning promotion with Dean Smith’s side while on loan last season.
He added: ‘I’ve sent the full track to a few of them (his Aston Villa team-mates) and all of them love it.
‘I’m always singing in the changing room or even the gym while I’m working out.’
In what has been a difficult return to the top flight for Villa, Hause has made 11 appearances in the Premier League this season.
