Aston Villa to move for McLeish after Birmingham departure

Aston Villa are expected to move for Alex McLeish following his resignation from Birmingham City.

The Scottish Sun says the Scot, who signed a new contract at St Andrew's in September, will walk away with 2½ years left on his £1million-a-year deal.

Villa's hierarchy held a meeting before the weekend to discuss their options following Roberto Martinez's decision to stay at Wigan.

And McLeish was talked about as a potential target, with owner Randy Lerner known to be an admirer.

McLeish was also talked about when Martin O'Neill left five days before the start of last season.
