Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has frozen Stephen Warnock out of first team involvement.
The Daily Mail says Warnock has been excluded from training with Aston Villaâ€™s first-team squad by Lambert.
The one-time England left back was told earlier this week by the clubâ€™s new boss that his services were not required. It is understood he has been offered to Blackburn and Sunderland.
Warnock, 30, will now train with Villaâ€™s development squad as Lambert continues to weed out those on high wages.
