Aston Villa encouraged in pursuit of Real Madrid playmaker Sneijder

Aston Villa have received encouragement in their pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

The Daily Mail says Villa want to snatch Real Madrid's £16m-rated Dutch playmaker Sneijder.

Sneijder's future at the Bernabeu is uncertain following Real's £220million summer spending spree and Inter Milan had hoped to take the 25-year-old on loan with a further option to buy outright.

But the Italians' interest has cooled and Villa boss Martin O'Neill could be ready to step in.
