‘Look into my eyes, not around the eyesâ€¦ when you wake up you will believe that Emile Heskey is a Premiership-quality striker who doesn’t fall down all the time and miss open goalsâ€¦ 3-2-1, you’re back in the room.’
Yep, Paul Jewell, Wigan Athletic’s manager, has confirmed a bid for Emile Donkey. Jewell told Wigan’s website: ‘Emile is a proven performer at Premiership
and international level and we have made what we consider to be a very
good offer to Birmingham City.’ Which begs the question â€“ why?
UPDATE: Birmingham have indeed accepted Wigan’s Â£5.5m bid for Heskey. Great business for the Blues, I feel. Paul Jewell also wanted to sign Robbie Savage from Blackburn but Mark Hughes didn’t want to know.
