Andreas Weimann: Villa striker is keen to stay, according to Paul Lambert

Weimann has 17 months left on his remaining deal - reportedly worth around £15,000 a week - with speculation surfacing that negotiations with regards a new four-year deal have stalled.

The Villa boss is keen to keep the Austrian at the Midlands club, saying: "Contrary to reports, I spoke to Andi the other day about it and he has never once indicated what the report said.

"Have contract talks stalled? No, we are still talking. I've spoken to him and everything is fine. Talks are ongoing but that's normal when you are trying to negotiate.

"Andi loves it here. I've spoken to him. I think there are more important things at this moment in time than worrying about contracts.

"He's still under contract so at the minute it's fine. I don't think he'll walk away. I don't. I think everyone knows agents can inflate people's salaries."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
