Little had dropped the broadest hint yesterday morning that selling Milosevic held the key to being able to finance a pounds 7m bid for Collymore. "The sale or non-sale of Savo will definitely determine which way I move next," he had said.
But now Milosevic has said he wants to remain at Villa Park which prompted a stunned Little to admit: "There have been situations where I have been asking about players. These things will now be put on the shelf.
"I haven't been quoted about saying that I have been after any particular player, but after what has happened anything in that direction will be pushed to the back of my mind."Reuse content
