Transfer talk is in short supply at the moment, however one snippet by James Nursey in The Mirror has the link we talked about the other day (see player quotes: Click Here ) for Hearts keeper Marian Kello.

This article by James has quotes from McLeish who seems resigned to losing Guzan.

To be fair, why wouldn`t Guzan move on? He did well whilst Given was injured then got dropped straight away and, to put it bluntly, Villa is not a happy place to be right now.

McLeish said: ‘We have looked at goal-keeping situations and potential No.2s in case Brad decides to leave us. Kello is in dispute with Hearts at the moment. We will try and take goalkeepers on trial first and foremost if Brad tells us he doesn’t want to stay. But we’d like to keep Brad. He proved coming into the team this season he showed he can be a great goalkeeper.’

Proved he can be great and then is dropped instantly. Difficult one with keepers isn`t it? Given is a great keeper, should he automatically walk straight back into the team though? Our poll when we asked back in January was split:

Shay Given straight back in 48%
Brad Guzan has earnt right to stay in 48%
Return Given for FA Cup then decide 3%
Undecided 1%
