Released Aston Villa defender set for Italian move

ron vlaarPunters in the Transfer Tavern had forgotten all about Ron Vlaar, and the free agent looks set to make a move to Italian side Lazio.

The former Aston Villa captain is currently a free agent, having left at the end of his contract in the summer. Vlaar had undergone some surgery on an injury that had kept him out for 3 months, but he is now currently training with his boyhood club AZ Alkamaar as he looks to regain his fitness and restart his career.

Vlaar made 79 apperances for the Villains during 3 seasons in the Midlands, following a move from Dutch side Feyernood in 2012.

Vlaar had previously been linked with the likes of Manchester United and Southampton, but the World cup centre half will now instead be looking for a new challenge in Serie A.

Villa fans, was letting Vlaar go the wrong call? Could you do with him in your defence now? Let us know in the comments below!
