Martin O'Neill stepped down as Villa boss on Monday amid reports the club's transfer policy was behind the Ulsterman's decision.

Villa owner Randy Lerner is now searching for a replacement and his fellow American, and current USA coach, Bradley has emerged as a leading contender.

Bradley is currently preparing for USA's friendly against Brazil this week, but revealed he is open to a new challenge with his current contract expiring at the end of this year.

Excited

"I have said over and over as well that I am always excited about new and different challenges," said Bradley.

"Certainly coaching in Europe at some point is something that I would love to do.

"At the same time, I also consider it a challenge when you finish one [World Cup] cycle and begin the process of working on another one. From the time one World Cup ends, you begin to go through the process of assessing where you are."

Bradley was also recently mooted as a contender for the Fulham job, but insists he did not talk to anyone at Villa's Premier League rivals.

He added: "People spoke to Fulham on my behalf. I did not actually speak to anyone at Fulham."

Talks have also taken place regarding an extension with the US national team and Bradley expects to hold further discussions after the Brazil friendly.

"I think some general starting points were laid out and I think it was agreed at that time that with this game coming up so quickly that it just made sense to use the starting points," he continued.

"Both sides, you know, could think a little bit about what was laid on the table and then we could pick up following the game."Bet nowBet now
