Villa boss Lambert waiting for Warnock, Hutton offers

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is waiting for offers over his fringe players.

Villa have yet to receive any fresh enquiries for out-of-favour defenders Alan Hutton and Stephen Warnock who have returned after recent loan spells at Nottingham Forest and Bolton respectively.

"I don't know what's happening with Forest, but Alan's back now.

"I'll see him at some point to see what he thought of it," said the Villa boss. "I think he did fine at Forest. They've got a new manager (former Villa boss Alex McLeish) and Alan will have his own ideas on what he wants to do.

"It's just the same, everything's exactly the same as what it was last time, with Alan and with Stephen Warnock and for everybody.

"There's no-one come in for my players, not a thing. I've always said you can't stop anyone from picking up the phone to you, but I've not had that phonecall.

"There's been no calls, nothing, so we go with the group that's doing it at the minute."
