Villa's Agbonlahor commits to England

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor is now an England player after turning out for Stuart Pearce's U21s against Romania this week.

Pearce explained that the situation is totally resolved and it is not even a case of 'water under the bridge'.

He said: "There is no water, to be fair. The well is dry. When I had a meeting with him a couple of weeks ago, straight away I knew Gabby was desperate to be part of this squad.

"The more times he can play for me and the more times he can put a performance on for me, the better it is for me.

"He gets treated like any other member of the squad, that's the way it is."

Agbonlahor added: "It's all been sorted, I sat down with the gaffer and sorted it all out, that's behind us now and we have to look to the future and the next two years."
