Brendan Rodgers rumoured with Premier League return to Aston Villa

It's only been a week since Brendan Rodgers was relieved of his duties at Liverpool after their 1-1 draw against Merseyside rivals Everton two weeks ago, but the Northern Irishman is already linked with a host of clubs.

According to the Guardian, Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood attended a crisis meeting with the club's board during the international break following their dour start to the Premier League of just four points from eight games.

His future appears unsafe, then, with both Rodgers and Real Sociedad manager David Moyes touted to succeed the Englishman, the latter seemingly unhappy in Spain.

Said crisis talks will likely have discussed that unless Sherwood is able to turn around Villa's form, he could face the boot. The Villains travel to Stamford Bridge this Saturday to face fellow strugglers Chelsea - not the easiest of places to go to amidst a crisis - followed by a home affair against Swansea City.

Sherwood has spent £46 million on acquisitions during his time as Villa manager, with such a lucrative spending spree arguably deserving of better results - a view that the board are likely to take.

Should the former Tottenham manager be shown the exit by yet another Premier League side, Rodgers could be the man to replace him. The FA are also reportedly rumoured to be monitoring 42-year-old's situation given that he fits the home-grown quota required to manage the England national team.

Roy Hodgson's contract with the Three Lions expires after the European Championships in France next summer, with his future hinging on how well they do. Ten wins out of ten in the qualifying stages, though, shows promise.

The likelihood of Rodgers returning to the Premier League anytime soon remains to be seen, though it poses an interesting question as to whether the former Swansea manager would be willing to drop down as far as a relegation-battling side.
