Villa clear out may include Given

It's being reported that Aston Villa may pay Shay Given off to leave the club.

The Donegal man fell behind Brad Guzan this season and may receive 6 million euro to end his contract 3 years early according to the Star.

At €70,000-a-week, that means the Ireland legend could pocket just under €11 million if he decides to stick it out and warm the bench.

Villa could slash €12 million of there annual wage bill by off loading some of their big earners.

Elsewhere Richard Dunne has been told by Villa manager Paul Lambert that he will not be given a new contract after missing the whole of the season with hip and groin injuries.
