England striker Darren Bent is one of three over-age Aston Villa players on Great Britain coach Stuart Pearce's provisional list of players for this summer's London Olympics, Press Association Sport understands.
It is understood that Bent, Scotland full-back Alan Hutton and Wales central defender James Collins have all been sent letters notifying them they are under consideration by Pearce.
Bent, 28, would only come in for possible selection if he was overlooked by the new England manager for the Euro 2012 finals.
