Thomas Sorensen is apparently “weighing up” his options and a report in The Sun claims he may well leave in the summer after falling out with Martin O'Neill. It seems if he doesn't get his first team place back, he'll quit. Fair enough then, next! Sorensen is in the last year of his contract so sadly would be able to walk away for nothing, not a great situation for Villa as he could command a decent enough price tag as an international keeper.
The Birmingham Post have re-stated that Martin O’Neill is looking to tie up Olof Mellberg, Luke Moore and Martin Laursen to new deals, but these latest reports don't mention Thomas Sorensen at all. So maybe there is substance to these exit rumours?
O'Neill said: 'I would hope to get Luke and Olof sorted out soon. I will be making big inroads now over the next fortnight to get that sorted out. We did say we would just leave it in abeyance until after the transfer window.'
And on Lukey boy he adds, 'Luke is doing great. He can get better but he’s working as hard as anyone has ever seen him working. He was great against Chelsea and I was really pleased with him. Luke knows if he puts the work in, he has the ability to be anything because he’s got really great natural, priceless talent which has pushed him into this position in the game. But you wouldn’t want to see that wasted. I’ve seen it thousands of times in the game. I’ve seen players who think natural talent alone will carry them through, but it just doesn’t happen.'
Finishing: 'His overall play at times has been excellent.'
