Great news as the much missed (who’d have guessed following last seasons showing?!) Villa midfielder Gavin McCann is back in training and could return to action on Sunday against Blackburn Rovers.

The 28-year-old has missed three games with a calf injury

O’Neill said: ‘Gavin trained yesterday and he was back out there again this morning, so he’s definitely on the mend. We’ll have to wait and see if there’s any reaction and we’ll have better idea tomorrow whether he’ll be ready for the Blackburn game, but he’s definitely getting there.’

Meanwhile rumours circulating around Stoke suggest Lee Hendrie has a clause in his contract allowing Villa to recall him with just 24 hours notice. Full details on Vital Stoke: Hendrie Story: Click Here

  • Hope McCann is fit for Sunday, we have dfinitely missed him the last 3 games. Wouldn’t mind seeing Hendrie back either, he has been on fire for Stoke

  • A Hendrie return would be most welcome, especially as the team has missed passion and commitment (in midfield) in the abscense of McCann and we don’t know if McCan is back for sure. As mentioned above, he has been on fire at Stoke, as he has been at Vill

  • I’ve always thought he did have the natural talent to add to his England cap tally but that he took his talent for granted and possibly didn’t put the effort in to push on( my opinion ). I think his England chances have gone ( especially since Gareth Barr

  • Too right, come home Lee. Who do you think Lee will chose for his testimonial? Too risky for the porn peddlers, so wouldnt surprise me to see Celtic come down.

  • Gavin has made a few of us, including yours truly, eat our words. When the previous manager used to talk up McCann I used to shake my head in disbelief. However based on his outstanding displays to date this season, Mr Fickle was right about this one thin

  • villa dont really need hendrie but if we could have him back and craig gardener should go out on loan for the rest of the season to stoke in exchange as we have loads of midfielders who are not starting eric DJDJ Gardener osbourne davis was on the bench l

  • Can’t wait for them both to return. Allow Davis to take a break then form a mifield of Barry McCann Petrov and Hendrie!

  • Good to have McCann back. We simply dont have a replacement for him, plus of course he was playing so well.
