The Birmingham Mail report has his goalkeeping coach Terry Gennoe quoted as saying Given is still tops.

"He is a top keeper and will be so for a few more years to come. Shay is as good a goalkeeper as anyone else in the European Championships. I say that with 100-per-cent conviction. I have total belief in Shay."

Adding, "Shay`s one of the most professional players I`ve ever met. He`s passionate about his football, he gives everything to his training and his games. You won`t find a more dedicated, professional keeper anywhere....You wouldn`t believe the nth degree he goes to in everything nutrition, the way he lives, the kind of training. He takes every route necessary to make sure he`s as good as possible."

And points out that Shay was 'instrumental` in helping Villa stay up.

Good, I hope that puts paid to any speculation. That (keeping us up) is indeed a FACT, why would we consider letting him go. We do need some back up thoughI feel.

Top keeper, would be mad to let him go, anyeay why would he want to go to London? He has everything he wants in Birmingham. COTVABU

Never thought any different...He is at the best club he can possibly be at right now.

Saved our bacon last year, always comes across well too as a person. As Pride of Lions said though, we need good back up. UTV

Another 2 seasons at least giving Benji time to develop.

Yes mike 100% agree Given is a great role model for Seigreist to learn off and in a few years or so will be our number one im sure of it, he is a top young GK for sure, but glad Given is staying TBH
