Aston Villa striker Chris Sutton has retired due to the eye injury which has prevented him playing this year, according to his agent.

The former Celtic and Blackburn striker, who won one England cap against Cameroon in 1997, was a surprise signing by Villa boss Martin O´Neill last summer.

However, the 34-year-old played in just nine matches for Villa, with the eye problem which arose in a match against Manchester United on December 23 keeping him sidelined for the rest of the season.
