Ex-Rangers boss wants Blackpool's Scotland star at Villa

Alex McLeish is keen to make Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam his first signing at Aston Villa.

The former Rangers and Scotland boss has taken the job at Villa after quitting Second City rivals Birmingham last week and is believed to be very interested in bringing Scotland international Adam to Villa Park.

McLeish, who managed the 25-year old at Ibrox, tried to sign Adam in January when he was at the helm at St Andrew's but could not agree a fee with Blackpool.

Now, however, he is looking to bring in the Liverpool target for around £9million with Villa midfielder Barry Bannan's name being mentioned as part of a possible exchange.
