Jack and Robert return with another 7500 to Holte Transfer Talk. This time we're looking at what Joe Cole brings to Aston Villa.

Aston Villa finally got the creative midfielder that so many fans have been clamoring for. But he came in the shape of a Joe Cole, which wasn't what a lot of us particularly expected. Nevertheless, Jack and I dive into the details about the 32-year-old midfielder and try to figure out what he has to offer to Aston Villa.

The good news for Aston Villa is that Cole was a free transfer, which is about all the club can afford right now. Rumours on the Internet have him taking a bit of a pay cut to join Villa, too. If Cole can manage to avoid the injury bugs that have plagued him lately, he could offer a lot to a team that could desperately use a creative force in the middle of the pitch.

What do you think? Is Cole the signing that Aston Villa needed? Let us know in the comments!
