EXCLUSIVE: Villa eye international keeper
Published 22:29 05/03/12 By Alan Nixon
Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish is ready to make a surprise raid on Blackpool for Scotland keeper Matty Gilks.
McLeish sent goalkeeping coach Terry Gennoe to watch Gilks in action at the weekend, as he prepares to lose current back-up Brad Guzan in the summer.
Gilks was on Villa’s hit-list at the start of the season and is now back on the radar – with USA international Guzan’s deal running out and McLeish needing competition for first-choice Shay Given.
