[Official] John Carew Joins Stoke


Recommended Posts

West Brom are waiting to see if they will be forced to look elsewhere for a new striker, despite holding productive talks with Villa over John Carew.

The Baggies are keen to sign a forward during the January transfer window.

Albion had entered into significant discussions with Villa over Carew, who was initially free to leave on loan.

No agreement was reached although talks were fairly advanced for the Norwegian who has barely figured under Gerard Houllier.

Houllier and Carew have history from their time at Lyon, and the striker was expected to be granted a move imminently, although Villa were keen to ensure that they have plenty of cover themselves before granting his exit.

But they will now be mindful that Emile Heskey is subject to a three game ban following his dismissal against Sunderland last night.

That will cast a doubt, certainly at this stage, over his availability - as will the uncertainty over Houllier's future and Villa's precarious position.

Villa would effectively be releasing a player to a rival battling against survival.

I really wish tos ee John back in the plans at some point. even just on the bench, which might happen now with Heskey out. Though his job should just be get in the box and have any of albrighton, downing or young crossing into him. I say give him some time against shef utd tomorrow to see how rusty he is. He is intimadting to all who stand against him.

OMG Carew is a crowd favourite but not up to standard, and i certainly would not want him on the team sheet really as we nned to defend from the front and he is extremly lazy. Love the guy but he needs to go im afraid
