Paul Lambert: No Ron Vlaar bids

The ESPN FC crew previews the Villans' season as they hope to avoid flirting with relegation for a fifth consecutive year.

Paul Lambert has said Aston Villa have yet to receive an offer for Netherlands defender Ron Vlaar.

Vlaar, 29, has been linked with a move after playing an important role for Louis van Gaal's Dutch side at the World Cup.

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman suggested last month he could move for the player as a replacement for Dejan Lovren, having worked with the centre-back at Feyenoord, but Lambert said: "The only thing that gave me some concern was people talking about other people's players. I thought that was wrong.

"At the moment there has been nothing and I fully expect him to be here. I have had a little chat with him and everything is fine. We move on and everything will sort itself out.

"You are playing a dangerous game if you mention other people's players. You have to have respect for that."
