Bent came on as a sub as Villa snatched a point at home to Lambert’s former club Norwich City, but despite being a regular passenger this season at Villa Park, Bent doesn’t feel a move is imminent:
“It won’t come from my side. I won’t ask for a transfer, of course I wouldn’t do that,
“Villa are a massive club and I always want to play for huge clubs.
“For me to ask for a move would be silly, especially at this stage of the season when there’s still a long way to go.
“Everyone would like an explanation about why things happen, but that’s not the manager’s style and I respect that.
“I’m not going to go in and say I want to leave. I’m more than happy at Villa and to play my football here. The attraction is the size of the club, the history and a massive fan base. I’m prepared to give it as long as it takes.”
