A few of the press have updated in reference to the Ron Vlaar potential move…

James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
Told Ron Vlaar to #AVFC not close. Won’t be joining tour. Villa hope to shift Hutton, Warnock or Collins to pave way

Tom Ross ‏@thegoalzone
#Villa boss Paul Lambert says he’s had talks with Feyenoord defender Ron Vlaar but doesn’t know if he’ll be joining the club yet

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Ron Vlaar still some way off being a done deal.

It makes sense that the deal isn’t imminent in all honesty, the CEO as well as the manager are over in the States and James Nursey did tweet the other day no signings expected until after the USA tour.

Has to be done though surely? Now Vlaar has publicly stated he’d like to join, it would be difficult for him to return to his club wouldn’t it?

Ron Vlaar: Ooh Ahh Ron Vlaar?! + Andy Carroll Update
Vlaar NOT The Cheap Option For Lambert?
Ron Vlaar dream move to Villa: Vlaar & Snodgrass In? Makoun Out?

I agree that some players will be shifted, those named are pretty obvious targets for exits, however from the chats I`ve had with the Club before now, it wouldn`t be a sell first, then we`ll do a deal. It would just be clear that some players have to go to make way at some point.
