Aston Villa join chase for Wigan star

Villa boss Martin O’Neill is keen on signing Rodallega after failing to sign Nicola Zigic, who joined Birmingham.

O’Neill is keen on signing a new striker this summer as both Emile Heskey and John Carew could leave the club, according the Sunday Mirror.

Carew is being linked with a move to Fiorentina while Stoke are reportedly interested in Heskey.
