Bent: England will benefit from my Villa partnership with Young

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent hopes he can start for England with teammate Ashley Young.

Bent says England are benefiting with the way he has gelled with Young for Villa.

He told the London Evening Standard: "Since I have been at Aston Villa, Ashley has been brilliant. I have really got to know his style since I joined the club. Obviously I saw him from the outside before when I played against him and met up with England so I knew he was good.

"But when you see him every day like I've done at Villa you realise what a top top player he is. Ash can play behind the frontman or wide. He has vision and passing. There is not a lot he can't do on a football pitch."
