Aston Villa expect to have contract discussions with Vlaar before he travels to Brazil for this summer's World Cup, reports Sky Sports.

Villa manager Paul Lambert is concerned that Vlaar's World Cup performances could incite a rush for his signature, and wants to tie the defender to the club before that happens.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vlaar (calf) is in the starting XI for Wednesday's match against Sunderland.

Vlaar isn't likely at 100 percent yet, but with the rash of injuries that Villa are facing, he is needed.

Vlaar (calf) could be recalled by manager Paul Lambert for Wednesday's Premier League match at Sunderland, according to the Express and Star.

Lambert all but admitted that Vlaar is not at 100 percent, although with Villa suffering multiple injuries to the back line, Vlaar may be forced to play before he's fully fit. While that works out for some players, it also puts his recovery in jeopardy.

Vlaar (calf) is not likely to play against Swansea on Saturday, the Daily Express reports.

Vlaar hasn't played since December 4 against Southampton, and will likely be out until after the cluster of holiday matches.

Vlaar (calf), who was unable to play in Saturday's Premier League match against Stoke City, could return for Thursday's tie with Crystal Palace, according to The Telegraph.

Vlaar was injured earlier this month in a match against Southampton, and hasn't been able to play since. If he is able to give it a go Thursday, he has a good matchup for a potential clean sheet.

Vlaar (calf) has not been ruled out of Saturday's Premier League match against Stoke City. Manager Paul Lambert said Vlaar "is doing alright at the moment. Whether Stoke is too early for him, I will have to wait and see."

It certainly wasn't a ringing endorsement for the defender, so fantasy owners should probably tread lightly here, especially with the condensed holiday schedule coming up.

Vlaar was replaced at halftime of Wednesday's match against Southampton due to a calf injury, the Express and Star reports.

Vlaar had started and played all 90 minutes of Aston Villa's 13 matches heading into Wednesday. Due to his injury, he's very much doubtful for Sunday's match against Fulham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Vlaar is off to a productive start to the season with Aston Villa, making seven appearances and helping the team produce two clean sheets.

Vlaar has only picked up one yellow card so far this term, but made six blocks and 58 clearances for his side. He is a go-to defender for Aston Villa.
