Alex McLeish turns attention to midfield General

New Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish had turned his sights onto his former Birmingham City midfield General Barry Ferguson as he looks to tighten the Villa ship.

A move for the midlands midfielder would not be the first time McLeish and Ferguson have linked up, with the 33 year old Scotland international having also played for him at Rangers. Birmingham City look to be a club in some turmoil at the moment with bids approaching left, right and centre for some of their players.

Although there will always be bad blood between Birmingham City and McLeish, they could very well be prepared to do business, as has been the case so far in the transfer market providing the price is right ofcourse.
