David O'Leary has rubbished talk of Eric Djemba-Djemba leaving Villa on loan to a Spanish club. However the player himself is adamant that he wants out.

Olof Mellberg says Gareth Barry's second yellow card against West Ham United was harsh. The Villa skipper said: 'I thought Gareth's sending-off was harsh. I thought the referee was going to give a booking for diving. I don't know whether he caught him or not, but it didn't look that bad from where I was standing.'
