Aston Villa take Omar Cummings on trial

Last updated : 28 December 2010 By Daily Mail

Houllier will run the rule over the 28-year-old Jamaica international with a view to a loan move in January.

'Aston Villa contacted us a few weeks ago with interest to see Omar up close,' Rapids managing director Jeff Plush said.

'After discussing the opportunity with Omar, we felt it would be a good chance for him to get a leg up on pre-season training and at the same time get the experience of training with a Premier League club.

'Omar is a Colorado Rapids player. We explained to Aston Villa that we would be open to discussing a loan agreement for Omar until our season starts on March 19 if it benefited Omar and the Colorado Rapids.'

Cummings scored 14 goals last season as his side lifted the MLS Cup and Plush does not want to see his star striker leave for good.

He added: 'It would take Aston Villa or any club making a significant offer for us to even consider transferring Omar.'
