Villa boss McLeish calm on limited transfer action

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish is remaining calm that his club is not making too much of a splash in the winter transfer window.

Villa have signed Irish left-back Enda Stevens from Shamrock Rovers and striker Robbie Keane on loan from LA Galaxy so far this January and with the transfer deadline set for tonight, it appears as though the West Midlands club will not be bringing in any other new faces.

"I'm not frustrated at all because I knew what the parameters were," he said.

"If you know in advance, and you're working with your board and they're honest, then if they say 'no' then at least you're getting that answer.

"It's not 'maybe we will, maybe we won't', and that's what leaves you frustrated.

"We know the course we're steering, and we've got to keep on that road."
