Heskey completes Villa switch
Aston Villa have confirmed they have completed the signing of Emile Heskey from Wigan Athletic.

Heskey has been reunited with his former Leicester boss Martin O'Neill after signing a three-and-a-half-year contract in a £3.5m deal.

The 31-year-old put pen to paper after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms with the Midlands club.

O'Neill said: "I am absolutely delighted. Emile has been a brilliant player for a number of years and this is great news. It gives us all a big boost - the football club, myself and the players.

"He has arrived at a really important time. We have got a bit of momentum going. We haven't the largest squad in the world.

"When people like Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen say Emile is good to play with, that is good enough.

"I am delighted he has come now because he would have had a lot of interest in the summer when his contract was ended.

"I think he should be not only happy in the environment here, I think he should thrive in it."

O'Neill added: "I know Emile from my days at Leicester, and he was fantastic for us. He had plenty of natural talent, even though he was only a young kid.

"He played out wide for a season and did the sort of work that Ashley Young and James Milner now do for us at Villa.

"We were sad to see him leave. But he wanted to go to Liverpool and play with Michael Owen - and he has done exceptionally well in his career.

"I will be delighted to renew acquaintances with him. He is still relatively young at 31, and in good shape."

Mido makes Latics move
Wigan Athletic have signed Egypt striker Mido from Middlesbrough on loan until the end of the season.

With Emile Heskey apparently on the verge of a move to Aston Villa, Wigan manager Steve Bruce wasted no time in seeking replacement firepower.

"Mido brings vast experience to the table," Bruce said. "He has a good Premier League pedigree having scored goals at Tottenham and Middlesbrough, and he has also played for some huge European clubs where he gained Champions League and UEFA Cup experience.

"He is still a relatively young man with potentially his best years ahead of him and hopefully he can produce a bit of magic for us during the rest of the season."

Mido will link up with fellow Egyptian Amr Zaki and actually began his career at Zamalek, the club Zaki is on loan from.

The 25-year-old told Wigan's website: "Wigan are a club moving in the right direction who play great football and their league position is no fluke.

"I'm really looking forward to teaming up with some excellent players.

"When a man like Steve Bruce, who has achieved so much in the game, says he wants you, you have to take up opportunities like that.

"My focus now is entirely on making sure we reach safety and then progress as far as we can this season.

"I'm also really pleased to be teaming up with Zaki. He is a top player and a good friend and it always helps when there are familiar faces when you join a new club.

"Now I just want to show the Wigan public what I am all about and play football."

Bullard joins the Tigers
Hull City have completed the signing of midfielder Jimmy Bullard from Fulham for a club record fee.

Bullard has put pen to paper on the £5m transfer and has signed a contract until 2013.

Speaking about the signing of Bullard, Tigers manager Phil Brown said: "We're trying to improve a squad that has been competing in the Premier League and that just needed a bit of bolstering.

"I think this signing shows everybody just how serious Paul Duffen, Phil Brown and Hull City are with regards to this year's Premier League. Jimmy is a good player, end of story."

The 30-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract at the KC Stadium, after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

Bullard is likely to be officially unveiled on Saturday and paraded to supporters before the FA Cup fourth-round tie against Millwall at the KC Stadium.

Lovenkrands signs Toon deal
Newcastle United have signed Peter Lovenkrands until the end of the season, the club have confirmed.

The 28-year-old Denmark international, who left German club Schalke earlier this month after his contract was terminated by mutual consent, has been snapped up after a successful two-week trial on Tyneside.

The winger told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to sign a deal until the end of the season."

Lovenkrands played for Glasgow Rangers between 2000 and 2006, scoring 37 goals in Scotland.

He is manager Joe Kinnear's first signing of the January transfer window.

Zayatte move made permanent
Hull City have signed defender Kamil Zayatte on a permanent deal from Swiss club Young Boys of Berne.

The two clubs agreed a £2.5m fee for the 23-year-old Guinea international earlier in the season and the player has now accepted personal terms.

Zayatte has been on loan at the KC Stadium this season and has made a big impact in Hull City's flying start to their first ever campaign in the Barclays Premier League.

Tigers manager Phil Brown said: "We have put pen to paper with Kamil Zayatte on a long-term deal and we have also agreed a new contract with Andy Dawson and there is a lot of good feeling around the club about that.

"That's because he's come through League Two, League One and the Championship with Hull City. He's now playing in the Premier League and I think this is a fantastic deal for him."

Zayatte has made 17 league starts and scored his only goal in the 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion in October.

He is expected to feature in Saturday's FA Cup fourth round tie at home to Millwall.
