McLeish keen to take Birmingham's Dann across to Villa

Alex McLeish is on the verge of becoming manager of Aston Villa and has already identified his first signing according to reports.

The Scottish tactician is tipped to take the reins at Villa Park after quitting his post at Birmingham City last weekend and wants Scott Dann to join him for the trip across the Second City.

McLeish brought 24-year old Dann to St Andrew's from Coventry City in 2009 and is hoping he can persuade him to move to Villa following the relegation of Birmingham last season.

skysports.com suggests that a move for Dann, and McLeish in that case, will be completed in the next 24 hours or so but a fee has not yet been quoted.
