Aston Villa boss Lambert admits he wants to buy 'new No10'

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits he wants to find a midfield playmaker signing this month.

Lambert has confirmed he wants a "Number 10" style player to put the spark in Villa Park after Villa enquired about Norwich's Wes Hoolahan and Porto's Steven Defour.

"I call them No.10s," said Lambert. "I think people that can make things happen are important, because they take a risk and they take a chance. If you can get somebody like that in your side they can make things happen.

"There's nobody like that in our squad right now.

"They're a special type of player, they know how to get into little pockets on the pitch to try and make things happen and that's something you try and look at. They're worth their weight in gold if you can get them - and pretty dear.

"I think every window, whether you are winning and on top of your game or not getting results, you always try and freshen it up and build it."
