Spanish Return for Cuellar?

Villa defender Carlos Cuellar is attracting admiring glances from his native Spain and in particular, La Liga side Espanyol who are keen to recruit the 29-year-old in order to bolster the back-line. The Spaniard has been consistently overlooked by Villa’s new manager Gerard Houllier and has had to play much of his limited role in a right back role in which Martin O’Neill had favoured him the season previous. He is thought to be open to a move in order to gain regular action at his favoured centre-back and the Villa boss may well be willing to listen to offers after claiming that he doesn’t expect James Collins or Richard Dunne to leave come the summer. Cuellar is highly regarded in his homeland and the Spanish press feel he has been unlucky not to be named at international level as of yet having put in consistent displays at Villa off the back of winning the SPL Player of the Year award for Rangers before his £8m move in 2008. Cuellar has made 12 Premier League appearances from his 17 in all competitions, 10 of which have been starts. The side have conceded 15 goals in these 10 games, keeping just 1 clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Manchester City. Cuellar has made 100 appearances in all competitions at the club, scoring 3 times and assisting 4.
