Tony Pulis will offer Emile Heskey a route out of Villa Park, if he can shift two of his unwanted strikers.
Stoke City’s boss has earmarked Heskey as a replacement for James Beattie and Dave Kitson and will end Heskey’s unhappy second spell under Martin O’Neill.

The forward has only started a handful of games in the second-half of the season at Villa Park and may see a move to the Potteries as the fresh challenge he needs to put his career back on track.
With John Carew and Gabriel Agbonlahor regarded as O’Neill’s first-choice strike-force, a fee in excess of £2m should be sufficient to capture his services.
Meanwhile, Sunderland are interested in Stoke striker Tuncay.

Now there will be those who will attempt to convince you that Emile Heskey is actually a very talented footballer who deserves far more credit than he gets and that the large sums of money paid for his services are in fact worth every penny. We are not those people.

Stoke City want the 32 year old and are willing to pay £2m for his services which would bring the running total of transfer fees for the Leicester born man to an incredible £28m+. We are talking about a player who has amassed a total of 12 Premier League goals in four seasons!

Remember however that Tony Pulis also paid £5.5m for Dave Kitson so this could actually be considered a bargain if they sign the Aston Villa man.
