Emile Heskey: The £5.5 Million Man!?
Birmingham City have reportedly accepted a bid from Wigan for that fee for their “striker” who scored 16 goals in 78 appearances for the Blues. Convinced that Heskey is still a Premiership-caliber striker, Paul Jewell is prepared to take on a player who has not put together a good season since he played for Leicester.
Heskey has his moments, but at the end of Birmingham’s battle with relegation it became say he should have been first choice. He gets to escape the abyss that is Midlands football to play for a side that will surely battle relegation now.
