Bones_Villan on the links to Klass-Jan Huntelaar who he says could be our van the man.

Klaas-Jan Nistelrooy?

We're winding up to that magical time of year and I'm not talking about Christmas.

The January transfer window is almost upon us and as usual, several names are being banded around, with Villa being linked to several of them.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is one of these names. As we have recently played Ajax (who weren't a bad side at all) I thought I'd take a closer look at him in a wider context.

Now, as we've all seen, a certain Brazilian goalkeeper who excelled in the Dutch Eredivisie has come to England and flapped. A lot. And as an ex-student, I know from many late nights watching Channel 5's Dutch football coverage, that the standard is poor as a rule.

But what of Huntelaar? He looked sharp against us on that great night and his name has been linked to the very best in the country for a while now. Should we be the ones to take a chance on him? From what I've seen he'd make a good target man and he's also got a good eye for goal. However, is he still living off that wonder kid tag?

At 25 years old he's no kid, although not at his peak. 75 goals in 90 appearances for Ajax is a phenomenal record, albeit against very average opposition. Another triple named Dutchman did rather well in the
Premiership. Remember him? He came to the premiership at 25 years old and the rest is history.

I for one (depending on price) would like to see Huntelaar at B6. It would be extra competition for Carew and may be the goal poacher that we've been lacking for the past few seasons. Could he be our Van Nistelrooy?

Sounds like he's off to Real Madrid to replace Van Nistelrooy who is out for the season.

I guess his price just jumped up 10 or 15m then :/ Shame, as I recon he would give us something a bit different.

As Ajax have now confirmed talks with Real regarding the player I think it's tie to move on.

The two most likely strikers to move in the transfer window are Heskey and Owen. If MON doesnt like Harwood anymore, then maybe Heskey could replace him on the bench (thinking particularly of the 2nd half versus Fulham!), while Owen although injury prone would send a message to potential future signings that we are beginning to attract high profile players to the club (and he might stay fit and score the odd goal). Yes i would rather have Huntelaar than either of these, but no i don't think we would get him.
