Villa boss O'Neill reluctant to sell in January

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill says he'll be reluctant to lose any of his players in January.

John Carew has been linked with Fenerbahce, while the likes of Nigel Reo-Coker and Isaiah Osbourne have also been mentioned as potential sales.

O'Neill said: "Who knows what happens in January? I don't want to be sitting here promising absolutely everything and then finding out that I'm unable to keep these particular promises about anything that happens in a January window. I just don't know.

"But I would be pretty loathe to be losing players.

"John has been an integral part of the side, he's done very well and I want a bit of genuine competition for places, which I think I have at the moment, maybe not everywhere, but in a number of areas."
