It seemed as though the trio had made their last appearances for the club after being cast aside by Lambert as The Villans struggled last season.

Bent was allowed to join Fulham on-loan, where he struggled to hold down a first-team spot, Hutton spent the end of the campaign at Championship side Bolton, while N'Zogbia has been training with the youth team since returning from injury.

"It is publicly known what is happening. Everyone is on a level playing field."
