Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert needs to find a buyer for Darren Bent to fund his January market plans.

The Daily Express says Lambert is being told by owner Randy Lerner that money is tight.

His best hope is to sell striker Bent for £15m and reinvest the money. Bent is currently injured, making a sale difficult, and only Fulham, QPR and Liverpool are showing any interest.
