Vlaar will welcome Keane to Aston Villa

Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar would welcome Manchester United legend Roy Keane to Villa Park.

Keane is expected to be confirmed as Villa's new coach later this month in time for pre-season training in July.

Vlaar, who is preparing for World Cup duty with Holland, believes Keane's character would boost the claret and blues.

"I don't know him as a person, I know him as a player," said Vlaar to the Birmingham Mail.

"He has a lot of fighting spirit, and I think that would be really good for us.

"He's a very strong character. I think everybody has a lot of respect for him and I look forward to it."
