Villa's Harewood prefers Premiership stay

Aston Villa striker Marlon Harewood is reportedly interesting Sheffield United but the 29 year old does not want a move into the Championship. However, Harewood's agent Phil Sproson insists the forward is in no hurry to leave Villa Park.

"Obviously that (the speculation) has come out of the fact that Sheffield United have sold James Beattie but Marlon won't go to Sheffield United," Sproson told the Birmingham Mail.

"It is totally out of the question. He won't go to the Championship.

"We are not exploring (the possibility of leaving). There has been a little bit of interest from one or two others but he is in no rush to leave Villa."

Sprowson also claimed Middlesbrough had a loan move rejected for Harewood, adding: "I think Middlesbrough have enquired about a loan and Villa won't loan him."
