Villa Not Happy With A Rover

Phil Jagielka in action against Arsenal last season.
Unsurprisingly Turkish International Alpay is out of favour with everyone in England and although nothing has been made public it has been suggested that a move to German side Hertha Berlin which leaves David O'Leary needing another defender.

However Olof Mellberg and Ronnie Johnson's contracts run out at the end of the 2003/04 season which means the former Leeds United manager needs to act fast if the club, sponsored by Rover need to find a new defender.

Meanwhile, over in Sheffield Jagielka ha impressed a lot of managers, one of them is O'Leary, the England U-21 International came through the Blades YTS scheme at Bramall Lane.
