The Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has said that he does not have any plans to include Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock back into the first-team. Both the players have been told that they do not have a future at the club and they can leave the club.
However, they failed to secure a move away from the club before the end of the transfer deadline day. As a result, they will be at the club until January if they fail to get a loan move elsewhere. Despite this, the manager Paul Lambert has said that he does not plan to include this in the first team and will be prepared to listen to loan offers.
The Scot has said that he only will be looking at making both Josh Bennett and Matthew Lowton regular first-team players. Both these players have been signed as a replacement for Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock in the summer transfer window. Lambert has once again confirmed that he does not have any problems with the two players, but has taken the decision for the benefit of the club in the long-term. Aston Villa have struggled with maintaining their Premier league status for the last few seasons since the departure of Martin O’Neill.
“The situation’s the same as a few weeks ago. I spoke to Alan about the Scotland game and he was fine. He trains hard. I don’t have a problem with him. I’ve always had good dialogue with him. He’s not training with the first team. I’ve said if there’s a loan move then we can look at it. I’ve always been honest with him, the same with Stephen Warnock. The lads I’m going with are my concern. But you never know. Football’s the most unpredictable game ever,” said Paul Lambert regarding Stephen Warnock and Alan Hutton.
