Aston Villa will move to land England striker Emile Heskey from Wigan when the transfer window opens in January. (Daily Star)

Heskey has been linked with the likes of Spurs, Liverpool and Middlesbrough after a few good displays in the England line-up, and it seems his efforts have not gone unnoticed at Villa Park.

The club appear to be leading the chase for the veteran, but does the Aston Villa boss need to sign the £4m-rated frontman, considering he already has the top class pairing of Carew and Agbonlahor to count on? Maybe O’Neill should just look to bring in some younger back-up, rather than bidding for Emile? Do the fans want to see Heskey at the club or is he past it?
