David O´Leary believes Aston Villa will reap the benefit of Nolberto Solano´s decision to retire from international football with Peru.

Solano was Villa´s player of the year for 2004-2005 but O´Leary was forced to leave him out of his side on occasions because of the gruelling travelling to South America and back.

Now the former Newcastle player will be committed 100% to Villa´s cause after opting to make himself unavailable for his country. O´Leary told PA Sport: "We left it to Nobby as to when he would retire from international football and I know he wanted to try and help Peru reach the World Cup finals. "
