Aston Villa insist there's no problems between manager Paul Lambert and Darren Bent.

Queens Park Rangers and Liverpool are reported to be monitoring Bent's situation, but Villa insist there is no problem between the striker and Lambert.

"There is not a problem," a Villa spokesman told the Daily Express.

"The manager has explained why he has not selected Darren for the last two games and has said his door is open if the player wants to discuss the matter."
