Cole To Villa Suggests Lambert's Given Up On Wes
Here's a little snippet from The Daily Mail that on it's own means very little but if you look at the bigger picture it might be a bonus for Norwich.
The Mail reports that Joe Cole has passed a medical at Aston Villa and is about to sign a two year contract at Villa Park.
Cole is 32 and was released by West Ham at the end of last season and would be signing as a free agent - right up Randy Lerner's street.
Cole was apparently unhappy at being used as a winger rather than in his favoured central position by Sam Allardyce and it's suggested that this is where Paul Lambert would use him.
Lambert's pursuit of Wes Hoolahan turned into a bigger saga than City's pursuit of Gary Hooper but it seems to me that having signed Joe Cole (or a number ten, as he calls them), he will be unlikely to still chase Hoolahan.
Just a thought, might be totally wrong, what do you reckon? The picture I found for Cole shows him in an England shirt. Remember those days? When Joe Cole used to be a good player. He lost his mojo when he moved to Liverpool and don't think he's found it since. Perhaps it's in front of The Holte End...
