The Welshman had been linked with a move to the Championship side.

The Birmingham Mail has claimed that reports linking Boaz Myhill with a return to Aston Villa appear to be some way off the mark as West Bromwich Albion are yet to have been contacted about the goalkeeper's availability.

The 33-year-old had been touted as a possible replacement for Brad Guzan given that it was new Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo that brought him to the Hawthorns during his time there, but the Mail reports that with no enquiries being made regarding the stopper's future, a potential deal looks very unlikely.

While the Mail suggests that a deal is not going to happen, it would not be a surprise if Myhill had been interested in a switch. 

Though he would be dropping out of the Premier League to make the move, a transfer to Villa Park would see the goalkeeper returning to the club where he spent nearly a decade coming through the youth ranks.

And with Guzan's form this past season suggesting that he could be a weak link as the Villains try to secure promotion at the first attempt, it would be fair to say that the Welshman would deserve to be considered as the team's first-choice, which is something that could not be guaranteed at West Brom with Ben Foster also in the squad.
