Neville said: “Everybody is looking forward to Henrik Larsson’s arrival.
“We obviously have a few games before that, but somebody of his experience, talent and goalscoring ability, could be really vital for us in that three-month period.
“It is an area in which we have been short because of injuries but although he will not have time to settle in, he’s been at big clubs like Celtic and Barcelona, so he knows the score.
“We have a lot to do before he comes. Hopefully we can stay top of the league up to then so he can then take us further forward.”
