Villa Join Liverpool in Heskey Chase


Wigan Athletic and England striker Emile Heskey is the subject of renewed interest from Aston Villa after it became apparent that Villa striker John Carew will be out for at least another two months.

Martin O`Neill sees the big man as the perfect replacement with Heskey having power, pace and strength just like Carew and O`Neill knows all about Heskey from their time together at Leicester City but Villa face competition from Liverpool

Rafa Benitez is determined to take Heskey back to Merseyside and the big pulling power is Champions League football, a return to the club that he supported as a lad and where he had his most productive time as a goal scorer could also help sway Heskeys decision.

Latics are rumoured to be willing to deal at around 4 million and that figure wont break the bank for either club so it looks like either who gets in first or does Heskey fancy reuniting with O`Neill at Villa or reuniting with Liverpool.

Looks like he is on his way, hope he doesnt go until the end of the month at least, we've some big games coming up

Let him go to Villa. He'll only get benched in Pool.

i think heskey will stay at wigan and probally sign new contract, he owes wigan for rescuing his career and he does not score enough goals to play week in week out at another premiership club, he will not want to back to being abench warmer
