Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert plans to be active in the January market.

Lambert also shutdown talk of an early sale for Christian Benteke.

"You can never stop people looking," he said. "But there's absolutely no way he's leaving.

"We're striving to build something here and make progress at the football club and there are young guys with a lot to look forward to in the future.

"As far as I'm concerned, nobody's going anywhere."
