O'Neill is expected to make further progress in the race to sign Milner despite competition from Everton, with his chances of signing the England Under-21 certainly enhanced by the lure of European football.

Villa have easily negotiated their way through qualifying, defeating both Odense and FH Hafnarfjordur, to guarantee their presence in Monaco when the draw is made at noon today.

O'Neill will today concentrate his energies on strengthening his squad before the visit of Liverpool on Sunday - with Milner his No1 target.
