Darren Bent: Linked with a move away from Aston Villa after slipping down the pe

Bent's future at Villa Park has been the subject of speculation for some time with the forward losing his place in the starting XI.

The former Sunderland man has found himself on the fringes of the first team under Lambert fuelling reports of a possible move away from the club for Bent when the transfer window reopens in January.

"Darren was on the bench last week. We've not had a cross word at all," insisted Lambert.

"Has there been any interest in Bent? None.

"Are you adamant you want to sell? Listen. My job is to pick a group of lads I think will win the game and that's my main focus, not any other deviation of anything else."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
