Club CareerEdit

Early careerEdit

Hause was released by West Ham at sixteen having joined the club's academy at a young age from his local side Lakeview F.C.. He had been a regular for West Ham's under-16s, including taking part in a tour of Bermuda in 2010.[4] He went on to sign for Birmingham City as a scholar following his release, joining alongside fellow West Ham youngster Charlee Adams in late 2011.[5][6][7]

Wycombe WanderersEdit

Having spent only a few months at Birmingham, Hause signed youth team forms with Wycombe Wanderers in February 2012. He signed his first professional contract for Wycombe only a few months after signing youth forms in July 2012.[8] He went on to make his professional debut on 3 November 2012, coming on as a substitute in a 4–1 defeat to Crewe Alexandra in the FA Cup.[9] During the 2013–14 season he became a regular player for Wycombe until suffering an ankle fracture in November 2013.[10]

Wolverhampton WanderersEdit

On 31 January 2014 he signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers in a ​2 12-year deal for an undisclosed fee.[11]

In July 2014 Wolves agreed to loan Hause to League One club Gillingham until January 2015.[12] He scored his first goal for Gillingham in a 2–2 draw with Swindon Town on 19 August 2014.[13] However, his loan was cut short in November 2014 when he was recalled by Wolves after having made 17 appearances in total for the Gills.[14] He made his Wolves debut on 13 December 2014 in a 1–0 win at Sheffield Wednesday.[15]

After the departure of Richard Stearman to Fulham,[16] Hause became a main part in the Wolves defence. On 24 October 2015, in a 1–3 loss to Middlesbrough, he suffered a torn hamstring that ruled him out for at least 6 weeks.[17] He scored his first goal for Wolves against Fulham on 10 December 2016.[18]

Having signed a three-year contract in April 2018 Hause signed to Wolves until summer 2021.[19] On 7 January 2019, Hause signed for Aston Villa on loan until the end of the season with an option of a permanent transfer.[20] Hause made his Aston Villa debut on 12 January 2019, in a 3–0 away defeat by Wigan Athletic.[21] He scored his first Villa goal on 13 March 2019, in a 3–1 away victory over Nottingham Forest.[22]

Aston VillaEdit

On 17 June 2019, after gaining promotion to the Premier League, Aston Villa announced that they had taken up the option to permanently transfer Hause.[23] The transfer fee was reported as £3m.[24][25]

International CareerEdit

Hause was a regular England U20 and England U21 international and played in Gareth Southgate's victorious 2016 Toulon Tournament side, including starting in the final against France in a 2–1 victory.[26]

Personal lifeEdit

Hause is also a rapper in his time away from football, using the alias Korts.[27][28]
