Sherwood ponders Villa skipper Vlaar's contract situation

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood hasn't discussed Ron Vlaar's contract situation with the club.

Sherwood is yet to talk to Vlaar about the skipper's future, with his contract expiring at the end of the season, and the boss has prioritised survival for now.

"I'm not sure what the club have done with that," Sherwood said.

"Obviously the club want to keep their best players. I'm sure the club will endeavour to try and keep Ron.

"It's not really for now. The focus is picking the right team and Ron focusing on playing and doing the best for the club.

"I know it's an obvious statement but none of them want to get relegated. It's all right saying it they just have to show it."
