Aston Villa finalising managerial shortlist with McClaren at the head

Steve McClaren has firmed as favourite for the Aston Villa job as the club goes about shortening their list of candidates.

The former England, FC Twente and Wolfsburg boss is looking to return to the Premier League and it seems as though he may get that wish with recent reports suggesting he could be the man to replace Gerard Houllier.

However, a decision has not yet been made as Villa owner Randy Lerner weighs up whether he wants McClaren, Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez or even somebody else.

It is believed that Lerner wants to have a new boss in place by the middle of June.
