Gray: Bent owes Villa loyalty

Published Add your comment

Former Aston Villa striker Andy Gray says it will be "insulting to the fans and the club" if record signing Darren Bent looks to quit during the January transfer window.

Bent has been the subject of speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool even though the striker and Villa boss Alex McLeish have insisted he is going nowhere. Gray believes Bent needs to show loyalty to Villa and has to start producing the goal-power which has failed to match last season's achievements.

Gray, writing in his Birmingham Sunday Mercury column, said: "Talk about Darren Bent seeking a new challenge away from Villa Park in the January transfer window is not right in my opinion."
