Harewood going nowhere - Sproson

Aston Villa striker Marlon Harewood looks set to stay at the club despite interest from other top flight teams.

Harewood's agent Phil Sproson has no intention of following up interest from Fulham, Stoke City and Rangers.

"If Marlon ever became available then I'm sure he'd probably link up with one of them," Sproson told BBC WM.

"He's going nowhere at the moment but, when the time is right, and it might be this time next year, then there's going to be four or five clubs who'd be in."

There'll be plenty of interest in Marlon when the time's right for him to move

Harewood's agent Phil Sproson
Harewood started only one Premier League game for Villa in his first season after joining the club from West Ham.

But he did achieve cult status for his performances off the bench, coming on as a substitute on 22 occasions and scoring five times, including what was effectively the winner at Reading.

Sproson says his client understands it is hard to break up the 24-goal strikeforce of John Carew and Gabriel Agbonlahor.

"He's at a top eight club in the country and that comes with its own price really, and he recognises that," said the former Port Vale and Birmingham City defender.

"There'll be plenty of interest for Marlon Harewood when the time's right for him to move, and maybe it's not quite right at the moment for Villa."
