Danish goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen is seeking showdown talks with Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill after Scott Carson's arrival at Villa Park.

Sorensen has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and Stuart Taylor, who has a calf strain, has been deputising, but he said: "I've asked the manager for a meeting and I expect to have it this week. It seems strange they spend a lot of money on Scott Carson when we already have two good keepers in the squad."
