Andreas Weimann believes it is vital that fellow Aston Villa striker Darren Bent stays at the club - and is fit for the entire season

Bent is set to return to pre-season training when Villa report back next week after an injury ruled him out of the final three months of last season and England's Euro 2012 campaign.

He was the subject of speculation over his future after Villa's dismal 2011/12 campaign but he has already vowed to stay, and Weimann knows how crucial Bent will be under new manager Paul Lambert: "Darren is our number one striker and it's important for the club he stays fit all season, hopefully gets loads of goals and stays at Villa as well."
