Villa confirmed today that the former Arsenal and France midfielder Robert Pires will join the club in the week.

37 year old midfielder was seen training with Arsenal during the summer after the player was released from the Spanish club but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger didn’t act on his comments about the midfielder still being able to hold his own within the top league in England.

Pires was part of the 1998 World Cup winning France national side as well as featuring in the side that were able to win the 2000 European Championship. Although he has a great looking international title list for his career, it doesn’t stop there, also boasting two Premier League titles and three FA Cup winner medals from his time at the London based Arsenal.

Aston Villa assistant manager Gary McAllister confirmed the story, saying that he believed that the player will be joining the club in the next “two to three days”.

The news will excite a number of fans of the player after an online poll resulted in the midfielder being named as one of the top six best players for Arsenal.

Robert has been training at Arsenal this week unitil he makes the move up north later this week

So the question i ask all you villa fans is this a good move?

      If Bassong was worth a315 million, Nexcastle United woldun’t have been relegated. Arsenal have only ever spent that kind of money on 1 player and he scored 4 goals at Anfield in one game.That is what Arsenal expect for a315 million and Bassong doesn’t qualify by a long shot.Now if they had bid a315 million for Lorik Cana in one of your make believe articles, that would get fans excited and get you a few more hits and might even be possible.
