Alex McLeish's future at Aston Villa is reportedly in danger as American owner Randy Lerner draws up potential candidates to replace the Scotsman.

Aston Villa are reportedly considering letting go of manager Alex McLeish after a disappointing campaign in the Premier League.

The Scottish boss, who moved to Villa Park from arch rivals Birmingham City last year, has come under criticism from the club's supporters, who are disgruntled at the side's 15th spot league position.

It is believed that the club's American owner Randy Lerner has already created a list of potential replacements, which are thought to include Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez and Everton manager David Moyes, according to the Daily Star.

Martinez was originally lined up for the coaching role last season but the Midlands club poached McLeish after the Spaniard turned down an offer to leave the DW Stadium.
