Very pale: he's an eccentric (5)


I believe the answer is:


'very pale' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'he's an eccentric' is the wordplay.
'eccentric' is an anagram indicator.
'hesan' with letters rearranged gives 'ASHEN'.

(Other definitions for ashen that I've seen before include "bleached" , "Pale (faced)" , "of Tree" , "pale in colour" , "Wan - wooden - pallid" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times and The Sun.
