Given believes he has to move away from Villa Park in order to get regular first-team football.Given is also employed in a coaching capacity at the Villa Park club but is willingly to leave that in order to play regularly.Given said, “If I am going to play, I have to move away from Villa Park.“That’s something I have looked at, but it has to happen, I have been waiting for it to happen for two years now. “I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Middlesbrough, I knew when I went there on loan that I was still able to play as I slotted straight back into things, despite having not played for a long time.“I still want to play, I believe I still have a lot to offer as a player.“I have only turned 38, but I see Mark Schwarzer playing in a Champions League semi-final at the age of 41, Brad Friedel is 43 and still playing, so I have a lot more to do before I think about coaching.“I hope it can happen for me, I just need someone to have faith, to take a punt and bring me in, to get me playing again. SHAY WANTS TO BE ‘GIVEN’ A TRANSFER FROM ASTON VILLA was last modified: June 4th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Home-page SportnewsShay GivenSportlast_img read more
