Aston Villa wanted Billy Liddell


December 30, 1958
Joe Mercer, struggling Aston Villa’s new boss, made a dramatic attempt yesterday to sign Billy Liddell, 36, Liverpool’s Scottish international forward.

But after contacting Merseyside, Mercer was told that Liverpool would not hear of parting with their famous veteran.

So Liddell, now out of Liverpool’s promotion-chasing side, misses his last chance of another crack at First Division football.
Mercer would not comment on his movements last night.
