The official site have confirmed that we are in talks with Marlon Harewood.
The Birmingham Mail report says Villa in talks with 'star player'.
Sorry, did I say 'star player?'
The 28-year-old striker was thought to be on the way to Wigan in a £3.7million but the Mail say he is now at Bodymoor Heath talking over terms. Manchester City were also linked but now they have Sven, I'd suggest they might have bigger fish to fry?
Not really the sort of signing to get the juices flowing is it? His record is 56 goals in 170 appearances, not that bad a score ratio but....?
His recent record at West Ham isn't that bad actually unless you concentrate on last season.
03-04 West Ham 13 goals, (28 appearances)
04-05 West Ham 17 goals, (45 appearances)
05-06 West Ham 14 goals, (37 appearances)
06-07 West Ham 3 goals, (31 appearances)
Got to back the manager I guess, it is his job that is on the line, but I thought we'd be going for top quality, not average players, maybe we are struggling to attract 'big names' without the prospect of Europe.
Harewood, an improvement on Luke Moore, Shaun Maloney or Gabriel Agbonlahor?
Still, like my mate says, everyone was asking 'who the hell is Peter Withe' all those years back when he signed for us. He soon showed us who the hell he was, and then some!
Martin O'Neill told the official site: 'We've been given the go ahead to speak to the player and we'll take it from there.'
Hope they both ram the words back down my throat, but this IS NOT what I had expected to be coming into Villa, I thought the days of cast offs was long since gone.
Our latest poll asks what you think of this.
