A Villa Park exit for midfielder Lee Hendrie still looks very much on the cards before the transfer window closes tomorrow at midnight.

Reports this week suggested his move to Stoke collapsed after Blackburn Rovers came in and bid for him.

Martin O’Neill has refuted those reports: ‘No Premiership side has spoken to me direct, but that might change and that doesn’t mean no-one has contacted Lee or his agent. At the minute the interest comes from Championship sides, but that might change. Stoke City came back in for him last Thursday and Friday, but for one reason or another it didn’t go through. I think there are a number of teams interested in Lee at the minute.’

  • For whatever reason, he’s obviously not in MON’s immediate or future plans. Best for all concerned if he moves on even if only on loan again until seasons end.

  • Where steff he’ll be more or less guaranteed regular first team football. At this stage of his career, and at his age, that has to be a huge plus point for him. Wonder where it leaves his end of season testimonial game though? Presumably he’ll still get it, but will supporters turn up for a game designed to benefit a player plying his trade elsewhere?
