Aston Villa manager David O´Leary insists he has no regrets about selling Darius Vassell to Manchester City in the summer, claiming it was a good deal for all concerned.

Striker Vassell ended a decade-long association with Villa, whom he joined as a schoolboy, in opting to make a £2million switch to Eastlands. He has fitted in effectively at his new club and will face his former team-mates for the first time in Monday´s home Premiership clash.

O´Leary told PA Sport: "I´ve been speaking to Darius and he sounds really good. He sounds like the lad who, when the move came up, said he wanted a change. I agreed with him and felt a change would do him the world of good. The Manchester City move was a good one for him. It was a good deal all-round for everyone."
