Martin O'Neill has added further legs to his campaign for Aston Villa to finish midtable by signing Marlon Harewood.

West Ham United are yet to comment but it is believed that a deal was completed at a value of four million pounds for Harewood to team up with Nigel Reo-Coker.

The ex-Nottingham Forest striker has reportedly signed a three year deal after turning down the chance to sign for Wigan despite agreeing terms and having a medical last week.
