Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan has been axed at Blackpool.

The Times says Ian Holloway has dropped Neal Eardley, Bannan and Ishmel Demontagnac from the Blackpool squad for the Coca-Cola Championship match away to Sheffield Wednesday tonight after they were spotted in a nightclub on Saturday.

"The three of them went out dancing on Saturday night [after the 2-1 home defeat by Leicester City], which I ain't happy with," the manager said.
