On the move: Emile Heskey

Emile Heskey will head a list of players leaving Aston Villa this summer after costing the club nearly 1million a goal.

Villa owner Randy Lerner is keen to save 10m from the wage bill by selling overpaid and underused players signed by Martin O'Neill.

Former England international Heskey, 34, will be sold along with Carlos Cuellar, Habib Beye and James Collins, while goalkeeper Brad Guzan is out of contract in the summer and may choose to leave on a free.
