We reported a few weeks back: Aston Villa have confirmed tonight that Jean II Makoun has been allocated the No 17 shirt, but that he is still suffering work permit problems following his loan spell last season. The brief statement was made on the clubs' Twitter feed (you know I'm slowly getting the hang of that place!). 'Responding to fans queries, Jean II Makoun is No 17. Waiting for work permit issues to be cleared up.' Probably won't stop the conspiracies, but there you have it.
That was following: Jean Makoun II Work Permit Hold Up
He was due a fresh start and it looked like many of the fans backed that, see: Jean Makoun? Poll Results
However the latest update is that he is still struggling to get a work permit and it appears that the main stumbling block for the 29-year-old Cameroon international that Houllier paid around £5million for is he can`t pass an English test!

When Lambert was asked, he said: "Will he be part of my plans? I haven`t seen him yet. I`ll have to wait and see. I know the work permit is a big thing here and the group at the minute is very good. I am trying to build the squad and we will see what happens. The group are coming along nicely and that is all you can ask for."
Seems the nugget stopped his English lessons when he moved to Olympiakos on loan. Didn`t show a great deal of ambition to get back to Villa really did it? Fingers crossed the work permit can be sorted and he can at least get a chance, be a shame for him to just have to be shipped out without really knowing.
