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.

However, all three could feature in Lambert's plans for next season, with the former Norwich manager seemingly keen to give his whole squad a chance.

"Everyone is even now, everyone is level," Lambert told the Daily Mirror.

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

3 bums. Hutton is a hatchet man,only reason he has not broke more legs is cos he too slow to catch his opponent .Bent is a lazy £27m joke.could not even get a game for a side who got relegated, nzogbia is just an embarrassment. Only reason they are coming back is nobody would pay more than a tenner for the 3 stooges

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
