Ciaran Clark: Focused on Aston Villa's survival bid

The 23-year-old centre-half remains tied to the club until May 2014, so is in no rush to talk terms.

He would welcome the opportunity to prolong his stay with Villa, but appreciates that personal issues must be put to one side during a Premier League basement battle.

Clark said: "The most important thing is that we stay up and then I hope we can start talks."

Villa will be looking to take another sizeable step towards safety on Sunday when they play host to Liverpool.

Paul Lambert's men collected one of their seven victories this season at Anfield back in December and Clark is confident they can claim a notable double.

He added: "We believe in ourselves and feel good about Liverpool's visit.

"Yes, they are a great side with some top-class players, but we beat them away and hopefully we can do it again."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
