Despite Charlton being keen to retain Cole's services for the 2004–05 season,[18] Cole joined Aston Villa on another season-long loan.[19] This move sparked off a dispute as Charlton were expecting Cole to return to the club as part of the deal that took Scott Parker from Charlton to Chelsea.[20] The dispute was later resolved when the two clubs reached a settlement.[21] Cole scored three goals in 30 league and cup appearances for Aston Villa,[6] including a goal on his debut in a 2-0 win over Southampton in August 2004,[22] in a season which was interrupted by a knee injury picked up in an England under-21 match against the Netherlands under-21 in February 2005.[23]
