Stifle their progress? the only players doing that is those two, hence the need for a good striker, then some experienced back up too.
Besides neither ji nor wickham are capable of holding the ball up and would benefit from playing alongside someone like heskey.
I'd take heskey on two counts. One: if he's brought in with a quality strong forward and two: as long as he's signed after him, as signing heskey first would be the biggest PR mistake this club has done since appointing wilko and the lead up to the babb signing and would put a downer on our support from the off.
If we were signing him as our lone forward signing of the summer he could fuck off.
