Emile Heskey Linked To Villa Again!
The source of all things true in football, the Daily Star, today linked us once again to Wigan's striker Emile Heskey. Or at least I think he is a striker, he doesn't seem to actually score much does he?!
According to the red top, Villa will try to lure him to Villa Park in January with Wigan being tempted to cash in as the big England forward could leave on a free in the summer.
In recent months Villa have been linked numerous times, mainly I guess because he would be a) cheap b) is a big man and MON likes the big man small man combo c) he played under MON before at Leicester City d) I don't have a d to suggest but didn't think it appropriate to end on a c.
Liverpool have also been linked with their former striker who has once again found himself in vogue for England.
So what do you think? On the plus side he might be available for a knockdown price as he is out of contract in the summer, on the minus side would this really be a step forward? Would he take us to the next level because although he does - when fit (WHEN fit) - give a few options to a team, his scoring rate is between 1 in 4 and 1 in 5 goals to games.
