Luc Nilis signed an agreement with the Villa about a month ago now. He will be joining us in the summer on a free transfer when his contract with Einhoven runs out.

I believe that Villa have bought Nilis because he is quality striker...granted he is old but look at Merson...still playing great football..I see Nilis as the solution for a short term problem without a doubt Villa will be signing or have young strikers coming soon!!1

As for us not having any really big names, well that is more down to our wage control than anything else....we will not pay huge money for players at the end of the career like Chelsea...nor do we have the lure of a high profile manager. But Villa still has respected and well known players like Carbone, Merson, Southgate and Dublin...followed up with players like Ehiough, Taylor and Hendrie. Also don't forget that players such as Yorke and Bosnich made their names at Villa before moving on!
