ANDREAS Weimann is set to decide his Aston Villa future this week – and Sunderland will be watching the situation with interest.

Paolo Di Canio was particularly impressed with the intelligence, athleticism and eye for goal of the 21-year-old Austrian who scored in Villa’s 6-1 demolition of Sunderland last month.

Newcastle and Norwich are circling reports the Daily Star Sunday, if contract talks do not prove successful for a player who is in the last year of his contract at Villa Park.

But Sunderland, who are in the market for top-class strikers at the right price, will keep a watching brief on a player who suits their new policy of buying quality, young players and bringing them on.
