Former Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood reportedly targeted by La Liga club

Could the ex-Aston Villa manager be on his way to sunnier climes?

According to a report from the Daily Mail former Aston villa manager Tim Sherwood may not be out of work for long, with an unnamed Spanish club allegedly keen to bring him in.

The La Liga side in question remains a mystery but the Mail claims they do currently have a boss but are struggling in the league.

A quick glance at the La Liga table suggests a few possible candidates but anything more at this stage would be pure speculation.

Sherwood led Villa to safety last season after coming in with the club fighting a relegation battle and without a win in their last 10 league games under former manager Paul Lambert.

The ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss may have had a battle on his hands to turn things round but he managed it, and in the summer he was given significant funds to sign a number of new players.

However, he failed to integrate them into an effective side and Sherwood left with Villa bottom of the league with just four points and a 26 per cent win-rate.

However, that has seemingly not put off potential suitors, and he is reportedly up for working abroad if a suitable offer comes along.
