Villa boss Lambert: Vlaar was never leaving
"Vlaar has a one-year contract with Aston Villa, and there he remains. Nothing happen with him was going to happen," argued Arnold Oosterveer.
Villa boss Paul Lambert added: "Even if he had been fully fit, there is no chance of a transfer."
Vlaar remains inside the final year of his Villa deal and is now just three months away from being eligible to commit to a pre-contract with a foreign club.
