Nigel Reo-Coker and Martin Laursen are strong favourites for the honour but the Villa boss says there is no shortage of candidates.
"There are a few people on the list and Martin Laursen would certainly be one of the names I'd be thinking about,'' he said when asked directly about the Dane's chances.
"He was terrific last season. There are a number of people who would want it but there are a number of people who are on my list who might not want it. I haven't discussed it yet."
