Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has assured fans they're working overtime in the summer market.

He told AVTV: "We're on the lookout. We want to strengthen the side. We have lost Gareth (Barry) but we are hoping to be in a position to replace him.

"Having looked at the market and watched what has developed with the major transfers - Kaka and Ronaldo particularly - you can definitely say it's interesting times.

"We are going to have to try and improve - even to stand still in this league. Manchester City and Tottenham will be looking to improve and I envisage Everton being strong again."
