Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says he's willing to buy Premier League experience in January.

Villa suffered a 5-0 defeat at champions Manchester City on Saturday to fall into the relegation zone.

Lambert said: "Would I sign experienced players? It's not something I'll turn away from. If they have got the right attitude to go and do it, and they fit into the group, then I'd look at that. The squad needs to get bigger as well. That is important as well. That's normal. Everyone has to have competition for places."
