Neil Moxley at www.dailymail.co.uk has us linked to a summer Bosman move for 32-year-old Croatian International and Bayern Munich striker Ivica Olic.
Neil says the striker is out of contract after 'an injury plagued few seasons`.
His former manager Martin Jol could also be interested in him for Fulham.
The article quotes McLeish on his summer plans, something that will delight most of the Villa faithful!
He said: 'We have already made plans to bring some players in. We have looked at a lot - Bosman signings but of good quality. I've not been able to stamp my own personality on the team yet. But it was something I agreed to. We agreed we would drive the wage bill to a certain level before we started doing business again. So we are doing our homework now because we are being prudent. That's why we are scouting as many good Bosman signings as we can. I'm sure the chairman would sanction big wages again as long as it was kept within our parameters."
'Like I said in January, if somebody coveted one of our players and maybe I had to sacrifice to strengthen other positions, then that's something that could be the way ahead in terms of the plans.'
He also says:
'My message is give me a chance and I'll get it right. I know it's a little bit gloomy at the moment but I definitely believe that Villa will come out of this well.'
Good heavens. Not saying we should be top five or six with this squad but we should be top ten. If he can`t manage this set of internationals then................... You can fill the rest in yourselves, I`m feeling lazy today.

Big wages, 32-years-old, injury plagued. Come on Villa. This is only a rumour but come on. We have to learn from the mistakes made over many years (not just under this owner, not just under this manager) of bringing in old players with no sell on.
So far we have:
