The Daily Express says Lambert wants to stay at Aston Villa but one of the toughest weeks in his career could turn even worse.
He was brought in two years ago as the manager who would launch a bright new dawn, but after a worrying relegation fight last season it's all on the brink of going sour again.
If his team lose their 13th home game of the season tomorrow against Southampton, the Villa crowd is likely to turn on him for the first time.
The club has been rocked by what happened this week and is in turmoil after allegations of bullying that have led to assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa, both long-term colleagues of Lambert at his previous clubs, being suspended pending a club investigation.
