Villa boss McLeish aims for transfer cash boost with clearout

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish hopes for a bumper summer transfer kitty.

The People says Emile Heskey – now 34 and thought to on £60,000-a-week – will join Senegal right-back Habib Beye, Spanish centre-half Carlos Cuellar and Welsh defender James Collins heading out of Villa Park.

And that will give McLeish much-needed buying power to revamp a squad he inherited in June last year.

Owner Randy Lerner is ready to stump up a further £10m on top of the £10m saved in wages to give Big Eck a healthy £20m transfer kitty.
