Still no return date for Aston Villa skipper Vlaar

Tim Sherwood is unsure when captain Ron Vlaar will return to the Aston Villa line-up.

?The Dutch defender has been sidelined with a calf injury since the beginning of the month but is still not ready to step into Sherwood's XI.

?"No. The longer it goes, you would hope it'd be closer but we haven't got date on it," the Villa boss told the club's official website.

?"The only hope we have is this big international break we have now.

?"Obviously won't be going away with Holland because he's not fit for Villa.

?"But you'd hope to get a few more back fit by the time we play our next Premier League game.

?"I want them all back by the time we kick another ball in the Premier League. We're looking towards that."?
