McLeish a fan of Fletcher

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish admits he regrets being unable to sign Wolves on-song striker Steven Fletcher when manager of Birmingham.

Fletcher has netted nine goals to date this season and was an academy player at Hibernian during McLeish's spell in charge of the Edinburgh club.

McLeish said: "We've always fancied Steven. Even before he left Hibs we thought about taking him at Birmingham. It was round about the time when James McFadden came (January 2008). There was a kind of feeling 'should we go for Fletch' and then Owen (Coyle) took him to Burnley."
