Don't Feed The Hare...He's Off
Marlon Harewood's agent has confirmed he will be leaving Villa Park come the end of the season.
Ok it's not earth shattering news, and some may even have forgotten that 'The Hare' was still with us, but having become bored of probably seeing Heskey constantly in front of him, and then a rarely used Delfouneso taking up the 'other striker' option on the bench he's decided to call it a day.
His agent Phil Sproson told SSN that several teams, both home and abroad have enquired about Harewood's feelings on a move and that Marlon will be sitting down with his family to find the best deal.
That will obviously not include a contract extension from Villa.
'Marlon will be leaving Aston Villa for pastures new.'
Simple, concise and to the point.
Not so sure why he fell out of favour, not so sure why it was deemed Heskey was a better option and not so sure regardless of the goals he did put away for us how it can't be considered potentially the worst transfer thus far under O'Neill's tenure when you factor in what we paid, his wages and the fact we don't even recoup a penny as he moves on.
Oh well, good look Marlon and it's probably more depressing that we have to close the door on a perfectly valid poll option once he leaves.
