Asked if there have been any enquiries for Warnock or Hutton, Lambert replied: ‘No, none. I can`t do anything if the phone doesn`t go.’

Enjoyable bit of guarded transfer banter with Paul Lambert tonight. Reporter: ‘Are you close to Joe Bennett?’ Manager: ‘What, personally?!’

James Nursey ‏@JamesNursey
Lambert was coy on Benteke post-match at #AVFC but hopeful of landing Boro’s Joe Bennett. I still think double swoop v possible

Mat Kendrick ‏@MatKendrick
Paul Lambert confirms, in the vaguest possible way, his hope that deals for Christian Benteke and Joe Bennett will go through #avfc

Timothy Abraham ‏@TimothyAbraham
Tony Mowbray said #Boro ‘not in a hurry’ to sell Joe Bennett but ‘if the numbers were right’ they would ‘consider it’. #AVFC

The Express have a report saying that Villa have enquired about Kenwyne Jones that seems to fly in the face of what Paul Lambert has said:

Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones: Kenwyne Jones Interesting Villa? nope: No Defoe Or Jones Move

The Express & Star have some quotes from Paul Lambert about the latest two links:

He says on Bennett: “Hopefully something might happen on that. Has a bid gone in? Near enough. It`s like Benteke, there`s no point in me really talking about it until I know. I think it`s unfair on Villa, unfair on Middlesbrough, unfair on Genk and unfair on the lads themselves. I`ll wait and see. There`s no point me talking about it until something happens. We`ve just got to try and see where we are with Genk.”

Meanwhile, Boro boss says on Bennett: ‘We’ve had a few conversations with Aston Villa over the last few days, but he’s not a player we’re in a hurry to move on,’ he told the club’s official website. ‘He’s done exceptionally well for us and is a very talented individual. But like all players, if the numbers get to the right level, we will consider it.’
