Sky Sports have highlighted the link from Voetbal Primeur to Heerenveen striker Bas Dost.

The Dutch u-21 international is quoted as saying:

‘It is positive news. You hear this and of course it is nice to know they are interested. Aston Villa is a club I don’t know very well, but they look good. I have spoken with my agent and we won’t be discussing anything during the season.’

Meanwhile, the often linked out Stephen Ireland isn`t going anywhere according to a Mat Kendrick report in The Birmingham Mail

Ireland apparently is still intent on forcing his way back into a regular spot in the Villa team.

“My objective now is to be the best I can and to keep entertaining the fans. Things are going brilliantly for me at the moment and that`s a massive relief.”

Adding, it was a relief when the fans sang his name during December in the home game v Arsenal.

“I was coming off and they gave me this great reception. It really opened my eyes and I thought ‘yeah, I can kick on from here. I have something to build on now`.

Fan power eh? Just shows what we CAN do.

“I think I`ve got a really good relationship with the fans. They`ve backed me. They can see what I`m about and they can relate to that.”

And McLeish on the enigmatic midfielders latest transfer out link: “I`ve seen the talk of the Red Bulls but I don`t know where it came from.”

This article was brought to you in association with Doritos chilli heatwave… well, I say in association, I was eating a packet whilst trying to type and now the keyboard is a little sticky.
