Heskey Set to Cash in

Heskey Set to Cash in


Wigan Athletic and England front man Emile Heskey will snub a January move to Aston Villa in order to guarantee himself one last mega pay-day in the summer

It is well documented that Heskey`s contract at the JJB runs out in June and it is understood that the club are willing to let him leave in January for a fee to recoup some of the £5 million that they paid Birmingham City for the former Liverpool and Leicester City man in 2006

Heskey isn`t seeing things that way though and with the chance to pocket anything from £3 million upwards as a signing on fee come the summer, when he would also have a pick of clubs, who can blame him

Villa might be an attractive proposition and with the chance to team up with former mentor Martin O`Neill a big pull for Heskey he could well end up back in the Midlands, but not before the 1st July 2009.

If he does go Bruce will bring in someone good for yous,I believe he was after the Ecuadorian Benitez.I saw him play for Ecuador last year and he looked really good,big,quick,and powerfull.He'll be a very good signing.
