Gladbach allow Villa extra time to make Bradley decision
Borussia Monchengladbach are extending the deadline for Aston Villa to make a decision over the permanent signing of Michael Bradley.
PA Sport says the 23-year-old, part of his country's 2010 World Cup squad, spent the second half of last season on loan at Villa from Borussia Monchengladbach.
Villa had an option to buy the player at the end of the campaign under the terms of the initial agreement, but the German club have allowed them until a replacement for Gerard Houllier is in place to make a final decision.
Bradley made just one start - against Manchester City in the FA Cup - and two substitute appearances during his four-month stint at Villa Park.
