Steve McClaren is set for talks with Aston Villa about the vacant manager's job.

The Daily Mail says McClaren is expected to hold talks with Aston Villa owner Randy Lerner over the vacant manager's job after Gerard Houllier's departure last week.

Lerner will fly in from America later this week and is keen on meeting McClaren, who heads a shortlist which also includes Everton boss David Moyes and Martin Jol.

McClaren has been out of work since his dismissal from Wolfsburg.
