Aston Villa are being linked with Croatia coach Slaven Bilic.

The Sun says Bilic last night put Premier League clubs on alert after confirming he will quit Croatia after Euro 2012.

The former West Ham United and Everton defender, 43, has snubbed scores of offers during six years in charge of his country.

Aston Villa are one of the clubs who could turn to Bilic if they replace under-fire Alex McLeish.
