McLeish working with Houllier on Aston Villa transfer plans

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish has been using predecessor Gerard Houllier as a sounding board.

The Mirror says McLeish has spoken to Houllier about the Villa squad he is inheriting.

Houllier has even advised McLeish to retain out-of-contract ace Nigel Reo-Coker, 27, who is Villa's only holding midfielder.

Reo-Coker is a free agent and can speak to rival clubs but may still end up penning fresh terms at Villa.
