Alex McLeish admits Aston Villa are in a period of transition and that the club has to "run within its means" after chief executive Paul Faulkner set his sights on securing European football.

McLeish has had no discussions with Faulkner or club owner Randy Lerner about whether money will be available for new players in January, and is aware that Villa's wage bill has to be reduced further.

The Scot said: "We aren't as strong in terms of experienced players as we were last season so, as I keep saying, we are going through a transitional period at the club."
