Tim Sherwood has revealed a sickness bug has swept through the Aston Villa camp ahead of their clash with Sunderland.

Sherwood refused to name those concerned but has concerns over several of his squad.

''There's a sickness bug around the training ground so there are a few players who have not been able to make training,'' he said.

''They are not well and the doc is having to do some overtime. We could miss a couple and there's a couple who are not well now.

''There must be a bug going around, we're...

Ola Toivonen joins Sunderland on season-long loan from Rennes

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat said that although he's much happier than last week after his side's 1-1 draw against Swansea this weekend, he felt the missing penalty call was a bit of hard luck.

Sunderland have completed the signing of Sweden international Ola Toivonen, who moves from Ligue 1 side Rennes on loan for 2015-16.

Toivonen, 29, joined Rennes in January last year for €2.5 million after five successful seasons in the Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven, scoring 61 goals in 139 league games and winning the Dutch Cup in 2012.

Black Cats manager Dick Advocaat managed the attacking midfielder, who has won 40 caps for Sweden, when he was in charge of PSV for the 2012-13 season, and has...

Dick Advocaat hits out at Sunderland's past transfer spending

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat said that although he's much happier than last week after his side's 1-1 draw against Swansea this weekend, he felt the missing penalty call was a bit of hard luck.

Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat believes he is suffering because of "crazy" spending on "lower than average" players in the past.

Advocaat belatedly accepted owner Ellis Short's offer of an extended stay on Wearside after securing Premier League survival on a short-term deal last season.

He has spent the months since then pleading for up to half a dozen "quality" players to strengthen a squad which has struggled in each of the last two seasons.

Advocaat told the Sunderland Echo: "We had a big...

Dick Advocaat future and Sunderland's dodgy defence has fans concerned

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti does not feel Dick Advocaat's job should be under question just yet.

Sunderland travel to Aston Villa on Saturday wearing the look of a club suffering inner turmoil as manager Dick Advocaat seeks a first Premier League victory of the season.

Persistent reports tell of the Dutchman's dismay at the club's failure to make the strengthening needed to avoid yet another scramble for safety.

Even Advocaat's own position seems capable of sharp fluctuation. This week he has publicly offered support to Sunderland's owner, Ellis Short, in the row over former skipper Michael...

Dick Advocaat concerned with Sunderland defence in Exeter win

Jermain Defoe had three goals, but Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat was concerned with his team's defence vs. Exeter.

Dick Advocaat struggled to raise a smile despite his side's 6-3 Capital One Cup win over Exeter at the Stadium of Light.

The beleaguered Sunderland boss saw a Jermain Defoe hat trick steer his side past the League Two battlers, but not before a trio of defensive howlers had left the result in doubt.

The Grecians twice hit back to reach the break level at 3-3 before Defoe, Jack Rodwell and Duncan Watmore sealed an ultimately convincing win.

But Advocaat warned: "I am happy with the six goals but...
