Aston Villa manager David O'Leary is showing an interest in Dutch international full-back Jan Kromkamp - in case talks over a new contract with Mark
Delaney break down. Villa have watched 24-year-old Kromkamp - also a target for Valencia - in action on several occasions for AZ Alkmaar and in last
week's friendly international with England at Villa Park.
O'Leary was first alerted to the talents of Kromkamp when he played against Villa in a pre-season friendly in August. Kromkamp, who is under contract
until the summer of 2008, has played a major part in his club reaching second place in the Dutch league, only two points behind PSV Eindhoven.
