AZ Alkmaar, his first senior team has now stepped in and invited “Concrete Ron” to train with them. Should Vlaar accept their invitation, he would be unlikely to accept a deal to return to the club.

At 30-years-old, Vlaar will still hope to have a few seasons left of top flight football. Vlaar refused a contract renewal at Aston Villa last season, and the poor timing of a knee surgery has left him without a club since then, but he has been linked with both Southampton and Manchester United recently.
