Moustapha Salifou, who signed for Villa late on in the transfer window, is apparently due to join up with Villa after the international games after finally sorting out his work permit troubles!

The Togo international midfielder should now be clear to start training with the squad after red-tape blocked him from working in England.

Martin O’Neill told avfc.com

‘Salifou will be here the week after next. He’s got a big international game that had been postponed which is on the Friday night. I’ve been told by the agent that everything ship-shape, or will be by Wednesday. We’ll see whether he’ll be in a position to be in contention – it will be nice to see him.’

Nice to see you, to see you NICE. (You can’t beat a bit of Brucie!)
