Aston Villa plan shock move to re-sign Man City midfielder Milner

Aston Villa are planning a shock move for Manchester City midfielder James Milner.

The Sunday Mirror says Villa are plotting an audacious £14million bid to bring Milner back from Manchester City.

New boss Alex McLeish has the England mid­fielder - sold less than a year ago for a club record £23m - on his hit list.

McLeish admitted: "Darren Bent has been in sensational form scoring goals for this club since he signed in January, but he needs a supplier and the ammunition to carry that on."

Milner, 25, is worried after falling down the pecking order at Eastlands - he started just five of the last 20 games of the season.
