Aston Villa have revealed their intention to interview Alex McLeish "imminently" regarding their vacant managerial position.

Villa are pushing ahead with their plans to talk to McLeish as they believe he is a "free agent" following his decision to resign as Birmingham boss.

They also insist the "high emotions" surrounding the possible appointment of McLeish because of his spell at City will not deter them if they feel he is the right candidate.
