Hendrie set for Villa exit

24 Apr 2007 - 14:12:45

Aston Villa's long-serving midfielder Lee Hendrie accepts that his Villa Park career is almost certain to end this summer.

The 29-year-old schemer is currently out on loan at Stoke City and says that there has been no mention of a new contract at Villa Park, leaving him in limbo after well over a decade with the Midlanders.

Hendrie told the club's official website: "I don't think I have a future at Villa. There's been no talk of me signing a contract.

"I'm disappointed because I've said a few times I'd prefer to stay and I've been there such a long time.

"I could have chosen to sit on my backside and play in the reserves for the rest of the season, but I wanted to play first-team football.

"Martin O'Neill has been pretty fair, he said he didn't think I would play much so I went out on loan.

"I know I'll bounce back really strong next season. I just feel I've got a point to prove. It seems like I've been out of the Premier League for two years and I want to get back, because the football is different in the Championship.

"My main aim is to get back in the Premier League again and start playing there because I feel I'm good enough.

"I'm just going to weigh up all the possibilities, I'll look at any options that come along."
