LONDON (AP) United States coach Bob Bradley says he is interested in taking over as manager of Aston Villa.
The 52-year-old Bradley, who has a contract to coach the U.S. national team until the end of the year, says his representatives have held talks with the Premier League club, which has been without a manager since Martin O'Neill left on Aug. 9.
Bradley told BBC Radio on Sunday that becoming manager of Villa "would of course be of interest," adding that he was keen to manage in Europe.
Aston Villa is owned by American Randy Lerner, who also owns the NFL's Cleveland Browns.
Kevin MacDonald has taken temporary charge of Villa following the departure of O'Neill, who is reported to have left because of disagreements with Lerner over transfer policy.
