Alexander Hleb's agent has played down talk linking the Barcelona man with a move to Aston Villa. Reports have suggested Aston Villa are keen on bringing the former Arsenal ace back to the Premier League. Hleb has endured a frustrating first season at Barcelona after failing to hold down a regular place in Pep Guardiola's side. The Belarus international was believed to be considering his future at Camp Nou, but Hleb's representative, Uli Ferber, insists the 28-year-old is not thinking of leaving and that there has been no enquiry from Villa. "We don't know anything about any request from Aston Villa," Ferber told skysports.com. "Even though he is not playing regularly he is not thinking about changing teams. "He wants to stay at Barcelona and fight for his place."
