Aston Villa could be facing a mass exodus this season as Ron Vlaar looks set to join Tom Cleverley and Christian Benteke through the exit door this summer, reports the Telegraph. 

Vlaar is the latest Villa player to be linked with a move away from Villa Park after the Birmingham-based side have had an arduous season in the Premier League.

Villa finished just three points above the drop zone in 17th, but Vlaar has been one of the few consistent performers for The Villains in their 2014/15 domestic campaign.

Vlaar has helped guide Villa to safety and was one of the best defenders at last year's World Cup, and has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United since the tournament in Brazil and could be interested in linking up with his former national team manager Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.

He has been at the club for three years after playing over 130 times for Dutch club Feyenoord.

Another out? 

If the 30-year-old were to leave the club, he would likely depart alongside team mates Tom Cleverley, who looks set to join Everton. 

Villa will need to reinvest heavily this summer to ensure Premier League survival again next season as the sale £2m of Andreas Weimann to Derby County looks set to go through once the window opens in just over three weeks time.
