Villa & Lyon Swap Strikers
Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of striker John Carew from Lyon and the departure of Milan Baros in the opposite direction.
The 27-year-old Norwegian international has signed a 3 1/2 year deal.
Date of Birth: 05.09.1979
Height: 1.93m (6'1')
Played for: Valerenga, Rosenborg, Valencia, Roma (loan), Besiktas, Lyon (joining them in June 2005 scoring 10 goals in 40 appearances).
Gérard Houllier paid £5.1m to take him from Besiktas.
Carew has 14 goals in 57 appearances for Norway.
So Martin O'Neill has himself a big burley target man, be interesting to see who plays off him and how the Norwegian settles into the Premiership, certainly the sort who should be up for the battle!
