Villa boss Lambert: Right time for Palace's Bannan to move on
Bannan will face his old club with Crystal Palace today.
"The thing with Barry is he played a lot of games," said Lambert.
"It's not like he never played. We felt we had to keep changing.
"He found something in Palace. He's only a young guy. He has his whole career in front of him."
