The 33-year-old is a free agent after leaving Fulham in the summer, and he has announced that Villa have been in touch.

"There has been some interest from a few English clubs," Riise told VG

"Aston Villa is one of them. There has been some interest from Spain also.

"But there is nothing on the table yet."

While the Norway international admits that he has numerous options, he insisted that a move outside of Europe is not on the cards.

"Of course there has been interest and things I have rejected," Riise added.

"I will take the time needed. It has to be right for me and my family."

Lamberts transfer policy is just terrible, and now really being shown just how bad, he has always banged on about how he can do it with youngsters, now many of which have been moved out on loan, while Lambert quietly recruits lots of experienced (past it) players in order to stop the sinking ship. What a joke!

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
