Gabriel Agbonlahor: Determined to help Villa stay in the top flight

The club's longest-serving player made his debut seven years ago and has often been linked with a move away.

However, academy product Agbonlahor has no regrets about remaining a 'one-club player' and is now intent on helping keep Paul Lambert's side in the Premier League.

He said: "Do I regret being a one-club player? I think, for me, I have always enjoyed playing my football here at Villa so it's hard for me to say that.

"Players who have left the club have had their reasons for leaving.

"For me I've always enjoyed playing my football, maybe other than the one season where I wasn't playing as much as I wanted to, which was disappointing.

"Apart from that, I have enjoyed my football and when that is the case you have no reason to look elsewhere.

"If that changed, then you would have to obviously look elsewhere. But if I'm in the team and enjoying my football, there is no reason to do that.

"The Premier League is the only place you want to be playing. That is why, if I'm asked if I am thinking about relegation, the answer is I'm not.

"I am thinking about helping the team to get out of where we are now. This is the league you want to be playing in, the best league in the world. There's no reason I'd want to leave it."
