Golly Moses! Word on the wire is that Aston Villa are set to fluff at least £10 million in the January transfer window on bringing two vastly underwhelming strikers in to replace the vastly underwhelming duo John Carew and Emile Heskey.

Rumour is that manager Gerard Houllier knows all about Frederic Piquionne‘s bustling attributes from the time he spent knocking around the French league, and is willing to fork out around £4.5 million for his services come the turn of the year.

With Piquionne in place, Houllier will then focus his attention on concluding a £6 million deal for Tottenham’s patchy gobshite Robbie Keane – who has been heavily linked with a move to Villa Park, at every available instance, for the past season or so.

Don’t bother on my account Gerard.
