Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given would like to see Manchester City youngster Ian Lawlor move away on-loan.

City rate the Irish goalkeeper highly.

Given told the Daily Mail: "I saw a lot of him because I was coaching at City's academy as part of my badges and he has a very good future. I'd say he needs game-time now, probably at a lower league club to get experience. But he has all the attributes to go all the way."
