Robbie Keane could make Aston Villa debut against Everton

IRISH captain Robbie Keane is in contention to make his Aston Villa debut - subject to obtaining international clearance - in tomorrow's home Barclays Premier League clash with Everton.

The Los Angeles Galaxy player, who has joined Villa on a two-month loan, will replace Achilles injury victim Emile Heskey - side-lined for a month - in the squad.

Goalkeeper Shay Given is available after a six week lay-off with a hamstring problem but defender Carlos Cuellar (thigh) and midfielder Chris Herd (ankle) are still ruled out.

Provisional squad: Guzan, Given, Hutton, Collins, Dunne, Clark, Warnock, Delph, Bannan, Petrov, Ireland, Albrighton, Bent, Keane, Agbonlahor, Delfouneso, N'Zogbia, Weimann, Marshall, Johnson, Gardner, Stevens.
