Maldini spent his entire career at Italian giants AC Milan, while Agbonlahor, 26, has already spent a decade at Villa Park.
And Villans boss Lambo said: “It’s rare for any guy to stay at one club for a lifetime — maybe Maldini was the last.
“But he’s that type of player — a local lad who only wants to play for one club — his club.
“People can identify with him.
“He’s just equalled Dwight Yorke’s record of 60 Premier League goals for the club. Given time he will surpass it.”
