Man City midfielder Ireland edging closer to Aston Villa move

Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland is in the sights of Aston Villa.

Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland is in the sights of Aston Villa.

The Sunday Mercury says Ireland is being pushed closer to the Manchester City exit door – and potentially nearer a move to Villa.

Although he is yet to officially hand in a transfer request, midfielder Ireland looks to be on his way out of Eastlands. The recent arrival of Yaya Toure and David Silva has only unsettled the 23-year-old further.

And with Manchester City determined to add James Milner to that list of summer signings when the England midfielder returns from his holiday, things are looking bleak for Ireland.
