Quality players signed for Villa at the end of their careers

Ok, Samba may perhaps not qualify for this list as it can be questioned if he was a quality player...but nevertheless he made me think of how many really good quality players we have signed towards the end of their careers, 5-7 years too late.

The first player I can remember was Luc Nilis. We have then had so many really good players who we have signed too late, like David Ginola, Robert Pires, Chris Sutton, Robbie Keane, Joe Cole, didn't we even have Peter Schmeichel at some time?

Would be fun to try to list how many of these really good quality players we have had who has signed for us too late...

Paul Merson seemed to be on a downward spiral (playing for Middlesborough in the old 2nd division,) before coming to us which revived his career somewhat.

I wouldn't say Merse was on a downward spiral, we signed him just after he'd had a good season getting Boro promoted and going to the 98 World Cup!
