Following on from the speculation linking Shane Long with West Brom and Robbie Keane with Blackburn, we can finally report a deal that looks set to be happening as Aston Villa open talks with Manchester City over Shay Given.

With Given looking to get back to playing regular premiership football and Alex McLeish in the hunt for a new goal keeper this looks like a good match up.

Despite failing to make an appearance in the EPL last season having fallen behind Joe Hart at City, the Irish custodian is regarded as one of the leagues finest keepers.

A price of 4 million pounds is thought to be the price required to seal a deal for the former Newcastle keeper.
