Marlon Harewood Signs
Aston Villa have this afternoon signed Marlon Harewood from West Ham in a three year deal.
The 27-year-old striker will join up with another former Hammer, Nigel Reo-Coker.
Harewood told the official site:
"I'm delighted to join Villa and I think I've come at a really exciting time for the club. The manager is aiming high next season and it's great to be part of his plans. I want to recapture the form I showed a couple of seasons ago, when West Ham got to the Cup Final and we did so well in the league. There's a lot of quality here at Villa. I watched the lads train this morning and I'd forgotten just how much quality there was already here."
"My mate Nigel Reo-Coker has already signed and I know all about his qualities, so I'm just really pleased to be on board. Villa finished last season strongly and I know the aim is to get into Europe this time around. Hopefully I can play my part in that."
Fair enough, not the signing we all wanted, but his record is one in three and now he is a Villa man, he's got my backing. Come on Harewood, ram the words down the doubters throats at get 20 goals next season.
Right, next signing please...........!
