Bent has a future at Villa - Lambert

Published Add your comment

Paul Lambert is confident Aston Villa will keep hold of dropped record signing Darren Bent beyond the January transfer window.

Villa manager Lambert has left the £18 million capture from Sunderland out of his starting line-up for the matches with West Brom and Tottenham and that has led to speculation that Bent will leave the midlands club when the transfer window reopens.

But Lambert said: "I'm pretty sure Darren will come back strongly. I don't think he'll take it (being dropped) lying down. There's nothing wrong with getting a knock at times, nothing wrong with it. He'll bounce back from it. He's only missed two games. He's nothing to prove to me or anybody else. I know what he can do."
