Bent only thinking of Aston Villa stay

Darren Bent insists he's committed to Aston Villa.

Bent, signed from Sunderland for £18million in January, has assured fans he is going nowhere despite former manager Gerard Houllier parting company with the club because of health reasons.

Bent said: "They (the fans) don't need to worry about me. I'm tired of moving around.

"I am at Aston Villa now and I have loved every minute I have been at the club. The people are nice and the staff are nice.

"It's a shame that a big part of what brought me to the club, Gerard Houllier, has left.

"But at the same time I am committed to Aston Villa and I am looking forward to the season coming.

"Every time I go to the training ground, I get a buzz and hopefully it will continue next season."
