Hendrie hints at loan move

15 Sep 2006 - 13:08:23

Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie has admitted that he would consider a loan move in order to play regular first-team football again.

The 29-year-old has drifted out of the first-team picture at Villa Park over the last 15 months and the recent purchase of Bulgaria international Stilian Petrov from Celtic has made a marginalised Hendrie consider his options.

"I'd sooner be playing in our team, but my chances are quite limited and a loan move could be an opening I may have to consider because I want some games under my belt," he told the Birmingham Post.

"It [the calf injury] has been awful for me so far and I need something to change - I need some good fortune because I feel the lowest of the low at the moment.

"I've lost another opportunity to show the new gaffer what I can do. This has just topped it off after what happened last season. I was hoping for a fresh start but I've had a couple of niggling injuries which have set me back.

"It's good around the club and it's great the new gaffer has come in -he's very good - but it's hard not being able to show him what I can do."

Hendrie has spent his entire career with Villa and made more than 300 appearances for the club in all competitions.
