Aston Villa are putting no timescale on how long record signing Darren Bent will be out of action with his ankle injury.

The England striker suffered the setback in training last week which forced him out of the 1-0 win at Sunderland before undergoing a scan on Wednesday.

Villa boss Paul Lambert said it is a case of "wait and see" but is resigned to again being without Bent for Saturday evening's home clash with Manchester United, and he said: "Darren had a scan on Wednesday and it's still too early so we will have to go with the same squad of players."
