Villa boss O'Neill hints at defensive midfield signing

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has hinted he will seek to add to his midfield in January.

O'Neill admits his squad is short of ball-winners and he could seek to fix that problem during the winter market.

He explained: "There is a bit of fluidity about the team [that also helps him]. Ashley Young can come in and when Stewart Downing is fully wound up, he's going to be an asset. Our problem is that because we have got a lot of footballers, we don't really have a ball-winner. Stiliyan [Petrov, the anchorman] would probably be the closest."
