Aston Villa manager Martin O’Neil has set his sights on signing McShane after losing out on Phil Bardsley who looks set to return to Manchester United once his loan spell ends.

O’Neil was hoping to make the left full-backs move permanent at Villa Park but Sir Alex Ferguson is to give the youngster a chance next season.

Aston Villa are now expected to turn to McShane, 21 who has been inspirational this season since he signed from the Red Devils.
