The former Manchester City star only joined Aston Villa last summer but he has struggled under Gerard Houllier and is now keen to move on.

Although Alan Pardew is in Portugal with the players, Newcastle officials are now believed to be in advanced talks with Villa over a loan deal.

Ireland is expected to sign a loan deal, with a view to a two-year deal in the summer, if all goes well between now and the end of the season.
