This is another very positive move from AFC with the addition of Podolski, both before the season has ended. This should send a clear message to the big names like RVP and Theo both who are due new contracts. Potentially very promising signs for the future, a Wilshere and M’Villa partnership is a very exciting prospect!
The signing is due to be announced officially at 17.00 after the WBA game.
Keep the faith.
