Aston Villa have confirmed that Ron Vlaar will be out for four-six weeks with a knee injury. It appears as though this knee injury as a re-occurrence of the knee injury that Vlaar picked up during the World Cup. Vlaar just recently returned from injury a few weeks ago but limped off against Crystal Palace.
However, on the bright side this injury closes the possibility of Vlaar moving in the January transfer window. Meaning that it is very likely that our skipper will be leaving the club as a free agent, unless of course he signs a new deal between now and May.
Currently Aston Villa have two centre-backs fit, Okore and Clark. Both have been playing terrifically, with the pair keeping 7 clean sheets between each other. While Baker remains injured, Senderos is nearing his return which will only boost Aston Villa as Villa head into a tricky fixture in the coming up weeks.
