O'Leary Says He Is Staying At Villa
David O'Leary says he has two years left on his contract and that he expects to see them out.
The under-pressure Aston Villa boss, who says he has the backing of the majority of fans despite a general dislike by the fans for the former Leeds boss (another set of fans who can't abide him) has also said that he thinks James Milner wants to sign for Villa because of him.
'I already regard James as a Villa player and I hope I can get that deal done for starters. The boy wants to come here and I think Newcastle want to do a deal. The only thing James and his agent asked about is my future and how long I'm going to be here. So I can only assume he wants to come to Villa if I'm the manager.'
Adding, most worryingly:
'I told James I have two years left on my contract, and I expect to see those out.'
