Villa boss targets late deals

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has confirmed he intends to make some late moves in the transfer market before the window closes, despite seeing his side overcome Fulham 2-0 on Sunday.

Villa's first home Premier League victory of the season came courtesy of a John Paintsil own goal and a sol oeffort from Gabriel Agbonlahor.

But with the midweek Europa League exit on away goals at the hands of Rapid Vienna on his mind, O'Neill is still hoping to strengthen his squad.

Referring to the expected arrival of Manchester City defender Richards Dunne, he said:"I have not heard anything today. Concentration was totally on the game.

"But we will obviously try and add to the squad before Tuesday at five o'clock."

Villa have now beaten Rapid, Liverpool and Fulham during the past seven days and, on the performance, O'Neill added:"It's pleasing to have won at home because our home form wasn't fantastic last season and certainly didn't match our away form.

"I'm delighted we've won three games in a week.

"The team – other than Curtis Davies who wasn't fit – who played so brilliantly at Anfield deserved a second crack."
