Double medical with Slimani if he's in France at the moment too.

I think Wesley and Trezeguet are the only two players we’ve signed, or been linked with, where I couldn’t find a YouTube video to get excited about. 

At least this Samatta fella has a half decent YouTube compilation. In truth, I’m a bit skeptical as to whether he’s the answer but will definitely get behind him. I just hope he’s more Mane than Salifou! 

 

The positive side is that we are after 2 strikers, by the looks of him, at minimum he seems a big nuisance who can also slip in and poach.

Alot of good headers as well.

Think he will be the "little" striker in the Big Man/ Little man combo.

He’s around 6 foot isn’t he?

I wonder if this was agreed last week and we've already applied for his work permit? Not sure on the rules, but I'm assuming a permit has to be agreed before a player signs? 

Well the news is a politician is aiding in obtaining a permit, don't know whether it's true but seems like there are complications for a politician to be involved.

The deal is round: Ally Samatta goes to Aston Villa. KRC Genk and the English Premier League reached an agreement last night, Villa would put some 10.5 million euros on the table.

Ally Samatta has been dreaming of moving to the Premier League for some time. The 27-year-old Tanzanian was linked to an English club almost every mercato. So this time it's hit. The Genk striker is currently …

I feel somewhat put at ease to hear that Scouting guru Josh Williams has said that 'For just £8.5m, Samatta has the quality to save Villa's season.'

Maybe he is having the medical in Paris to speed things up so he can play tomorrow or Tuesday.

 That's what I really like about the headed goals. They're not all coming straight to his head. He's making concerted runs to win and hit them with force

To be honest I’d forgotten goals could be scored with the head, so I’ll. take him 👍

This is probably about the best kind of signing we can expect at the moment. It's a punt, but it's one we have to make, and, sadly, one we make with an eye on Championship football next season.

He seems to have a bit about him, hopefully he can physically take to the league. If he can, then the ability will follow hopefully.

Needs to have another signed with him though. It's no good trying to fudge our way through the rest of the season with 1 striker. Get a loan in alongside him.

To me he looks at least comparable to Wesley - bit it just makes the Wesley fee even more ridiculous - I suppose this guy is older at 27.

At 5'6 I'm concerned he'll have the height to deal with PL defenders

This guy has got the potential to become a villa legend in a few months if he can help keep us up. 

No pressure then 😉
