Aston Villa will not press Roy Keane about a decision over joining Paul Lambert's coaching staff.

The Express & Star says the claret and blues are relaxed about the situation to make Keane Lambert's No.2.

The squad return for pre-season training on July 7 and head to Texas for a two-game tour against FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo later next month.

There is no immediate timeframe for the former Manchester United midfielder's potential arrival after he was approached to become Lambert's assistant.
