Villa’s Vlaar on the radar

Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are looking to ease their defensive worries by bringing in denfender Ron Vlaar this month.

The experienced central defender’s Aston Villa conract runs out at the end of the season. Paul Lambert may look to make money on the Dutchman in this transfer window rather than lose him in the summer for free.

United seem to have emerged front-runners ahead of their Premier League rivals and are looking to sign Vlaar for around £1.5million.

Another factor which may interest Vlaar in a move to Old Trafford is the fact Louis Van Gaal is the manager. The current Villa captain was influential in the recent World Cup when playing under van Gaal’s leadership for the Netherlands.

At the present moment, Vlaar has made 71 appearances for Aston Villa scoring two goals.
