Vlaar Bar

Vlaar Bar

Paul Lambert has reiterated that Aston Villa defender Roncrete Vlaar is not for sale and that clubs are wasting their time in trying to prize the 29 year old Villa player away from B6. The Villa boss has been left decidedly unimpressed by Southampton manager Koeman's public wooing of the Dutch World Cup star. Koeman was reported to have stated that: "Ron would definitely be an option. But I think he won`t be cheap right now. Let`s just wait and see."

Ron Vlaar, having impressed at the World Cup has naturally attracted interest from a host of clubs. Roma and QPR are suitors with a touted link to Van Gaal's United also mentioned in the press. Undoubtedly, Villa will want to get their player back in the fold and contract talks under way as Vlaar will be a free agent next summer. When questioned about Vlaar's status Lambert seemed in resolute and determined mood and offered the following rebuttals.

"Ron is not only an Aston Villa player, he is our captain."
"He has one year remaining on his contract and he is staying here."
"We will be talking with him in due course about extending his deal and we are confident those talks will be positive."
"Ron has always said that he is really happy here and has done nothing to suggest anything has changed."
"None of this speculation is coming from him, or anyone connected with him."
"We aren't selling. It is as simple as that."

Whether Vlaar will feel the same way remains to be seen. At 29 years old with his stock currently in the footballing stratosphere he may well decide that a big four year pay deal with an elite club would be hard to resist, though unusually neither Vlaar or his agent have indicated that a move is likely. Villa have also developed a reputation for hard ball and are by no means an easy club to do business with.

Villa fans will no doubt be keen to see the situation resolved when Vlaar rejoins the squad on the conclusion of their US tour.

If it's Villa it's Vital.

Good to hear from Lambert, hopefully he will stay but if someone wants him they can pay top dollar.

if I was him, unless a big boy comes in, I'd run down my contract and go on a free next summer.

I really hope he's not lured away to a bigger team like Southampton or QPR
