Sky, amongst others, say that Villa have opened contract talks with defender Carlos Cuellar.
Good, I like him! LOL
McLeish said: 'I think there have been talks and they will be ongoing." Adding about the 30 year old Spaniard "I've said to Carlos it's important he keeps playing as well as he can and then contracts won't be a problem for him. If he produces the form he is capable of, we will get more clean sheets so why would you want to let someone like that go.'
He is also quoted saying he doesn`t know if Robbie Keane might return or not. "We have to see where we are in terms of recruitment in the summer but Robbie has had a good influence on the place. Where he is right now probably has a glamorous feeling about it but at the same time he's got a bit of adulation from Villa fans so maybe that has probably whetted his appetite.'
So, you happy with keeping Carlos? I`d take him over and above Dunne and Collins personally! They would both be shipped out this summer if I was boss!
