Agbolahor set for new central role at Villa

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is set to re-jig his strikers.

With wingers Scott Sinclair and Carles Gil signing, it's less likely that Gabby Agbonlahor and Andreas Weimann will be used on the flank.

"There's more competition with the new signings," said Lambert. "Now Gabby and Andi, who are better as strikers, will challenge (Benteke). I've been playing them out wide but they are quick, smaller-type guys, whereas Christian is different. It gives me the option.

"Remember, I left Christian out against Southampton last year and played Libor. He scored that day.

"But if we could bring in another striker we would try if that was feasible."
