Baros Czechs in

On this day in 2005, Milan Baros joined Villa from Liverpool for a reported fee of £7m.

The Czech Republic international striker hit the only goal of the game on his debut against Blackburn Rovers but spent only 18 months at Villa Park, scoring 14 goals in 51 appearances. 

In January 2007 he moved to French club Lyon as part of the deal which brought Norwegian striker John Carew to Villa Park.
