Marc Albrighton: Linked with loan move a

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has admitted he is willing to send out Marc Albrighton on loan in a bid to get the winger some first-team football.

Albrighton has failed to establish himself under Lambert after missing most of last season through injury and has yet to feature this season.

A number of Championship sides are thought to be keen on a loan deal and Lambert will consider letting him go on a temporary basis.

"He's been unfortunate, Marc," Lambert told the Birmingham Mail.

"He missed nearly a whole season, he's still really short (of match fitness).

"If something comes up and I think it's right I'll look at it. If I don't he'll stay here.

"He possibly needs a good run, he needs to stay injury free. He missed most of last year and even in pre-season he missed games.

"He needs that run where he does not break down.

"It's a big year but he will help himself. It's unfair as he has missed a lot of game time."

Lambert, however, has ruled out loan moves for young duo Jordan Bowery and Gary Gardner.

Bowery has not been involved in the first-team since the opening day of the season win at Arsenal, while midfielder Gardner is currently recovering from a back injury, but Lambert plans to keep them in his squad.

"Jordan can play wide as well, it's the same, I need every one of the 25 to play well," he added. "He's not going out on loan at this minute, no.

"I've not really thought about Gary Gardner going out on loan, no, not at this minute."
