Transfer Window Shuts - COME ON VILLA
Well, that appears to be that, the end of another transfer window and again, not a massive amount of action, in fact just one main signing in and one signing out.
I'm sure this isn't for the lack of trying, it hasn't exactly been a bumper window for most teams to be fair.
So now it is over, we can concentrate on finishing as high as possible in the top 4!
COME ON VILLA!
This is MON's transfers to date updated for the month of January. Last year's January purchase is the only exit and Emile Heskey the only major incoming signing.
I just noticed an interesting quote on Vital Arsenal about us buying Heskey, seems their frustrations are pretty high!
Iceman said: Villa have spent £4million on Heskey when they could have had him for free in the summer. Why because its a starement of intent on where they want to be next season, on the face of it its a waste of £4million but the reality is its a great bit of business when your trying to push a club forwards. I guess by 5pm we will know where this club is heading in the near future.
