Aston Villa are in the mood for a bit of wheeling-and-dealing come January. They’re hoping this striker plus cash will be enough to bolster an already strong strike force!

Santa Cruz could be a perfect mix with Carew and Agbonlahor in the second half of the season. Villa’s unselfish ability to get everyone in the mix could work perfectly for a striker that really needs a decent midfielder feeding him the ball. Could you imagine Ashley Young whipping a ball in to the foot of Santa Cruz? Villa supporters have to be intrigued with that idea!
Would Villa supporters be interested in parting with Harewood and cash for Santa Cruz?
