Paul Lambert said that he isn’t worried about the rumours on captain Ron Vlaar possibly moving to Southampton. Pay per head sportsbooks and many Live betting fans also don’t believe that Aston Villa’s manager should be too concerned about the player going anywhere.
Price per head services learned that Southampton is reportedly targeting Vlaar, and the club will most likely see the Netherlands international as Dejan Lovren’s perfect replacement.
The former Feyenoord player, who had a great World Cup campaign and was able to win the admiration of many Live betting fans, was even linked with a switch to Manchester United, where Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal took charge.
But pay per head sportsbooks learned that with Villa set to start on Saturday their campaign in the Premier League with a game at Stoke City, Lambert believe that there will be no trouble with his captain, and stressed that Vlaar was not looking to be transfered.
He told reporters: “To be fair to Ron, he has not come to us or anything.
“We have had little chats here and there, but I think his main concern was getting back after the World Cup, getting fit and hopefully being ready for Saturday.
“That is where he has been. I have a good rapport with Ron, so I don’t have any problem with that whatsoever.”
And pay per head sportsbooks found out that even though Vlaar could feature in the game on Saturday, two men who will not be able to play are attackers Libor Kozak (broken leg) and Christian Benteke (Achilles), but Lambert is confident that the players are making good progress, and many Live betting fans certainly hope so.
“I don’t put a time limit on it because their two injuries were really bad,” he added. “But Christian has started jogging outside, so he is doing well. Libor is doing great.
“So a few weeks I think. What will help us certainly will be the international break.”
Colombia’s Carlos Sanchez is a player that many Live betting fans expect to see arrive at Villa Park before the transfer window comes to an end, but Lambert did not say whether the player is being targeted or not.
“The situation is he’s not our player,” Lambert said. “We will have to see what happens over the next few days.
