Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish admits he will look to overhaul his squad this summer but stressed he wants to keep star strikers Darren Bent and Gabriel Agbonlahor.

McLeish has been under instructions to reduce the club's wage bill this season and the reason why became evident after the club reported a loss of nearly £54 million this week for 2010-2011. He will have money available to buy players - although only a limited number - and is already eyeing up a series of possible Bosman signings.

McLeish said: "We've already made plans to bring some players in. We've looked at a lot of players that we have a good chance of bringing to the club, Bosman signings but of a good quality."
