On loan Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie has said he doesn’t know where his future lies.

The 29-year-old has made a big impact at Stoke after being loaned out, having scored twice and put in some quality performances.

Asked if he would stay at the Britannia Stadium, Hendrie said:

‘Who knows? It’s a long, old season. I’m here for a few months and got to keep doing well. I’m in my last year of my contract, it’s a big year for me.’

Hendrie is Villa’s longest serving player and was due to have a testimonial this year to mark his tenth season but lil Lee has found himself fall down the pecking order following a string of injuries and suspensions.

Hendrie was last seen with the Villa faithful cheering on the lads against Leicester City in the Carling Cup.

  • I hope for his sake he rekindles his spirit, gets match fit and has an Impact when he comes back in the new year. I do suspect he will get a handful of matches to prove to MON he is worth keeping.

    IMHO he will, under MON there will be no slacking off

  • Talking to a Stoke fan the other day who said Hendrie was doing great for them. OK its a lower league but we don’t have that many goal scoring midfielders do we. After all there’s Barry, when not at left back, and ?

  • Hopefully Petrov Gordonsleftboot. However, I see your point. I think we could do with Lee back. He cares for the club and on his day can make a big impact on the game. Hopefully, MO’N will give him a chance on his return from Stoke.

  • I dont want him back, he’s a step backwards… we should be looking at the likes of Shaun Wright Phillips.

  • Went to the O’Neill forum tonight thanks to Tom Ross (he doesn’t half get some stick, but he is a good chap!!) and O’Neill said that Hendrie will be better with match fitness and is going nowhere until he has had his testimonial at the end of the season a

  • I think Lee has finally found his level in the Championship and should stay their and be the cream of thw crop rather than just another average prem player.

  • He has his detractors but it was great to see him in with the Villa fans at Leicester. He was singing and cheering as much as the rest of us. And although we are on the look out for new players are we so overburdened with players that he is not worth havi

  • He’s had enough chances. I’m happy for him to stay at Stoke. I agree with industrial, he’s a step backwards.

  • he’s had 10 seasons with us and has never really shone apart from small glimpses of magic……let the youngsters play

  • hendrie or berger coming on as sub i know which one i would choose and it certainly aint patrik! bring lee home,he is villa through and through and always would be a good squad player for this year at least.

  • I’m on the side of bringing Lee home. Even as a squad member he will be a huge plus, and the way he’s been performing up in the potteries, who knows? He may well be in the type of form to force his way into the first team, and once there, he’ll take some

  • Of course, looking at his from his viewpoint, he’s looking for regular first team football, and there has to be a huge question mark over whether that could/would be the case for him at Villa Park.
