Late night posting and all credit goes to Vital Villa for the spot.
The Argus newspaper have quoted Brighton and Hove caretaker Nathan Jones with the following
He’ll be out for seven to ten days because of the groin strain. Villa have recalled him and Gary (Gardner) anyway. They want them back involved and then we have to revisit that in the near future.
They’ve both done fantastically well. On behalf of the football club we’d like to thank them for their endeavours
With the injuries and red cards, this should come as no surprise but to be honest, it has surprised me a little.
I am glad to see both return, but can’t help but think where this puts the likes of Grealish and especially Robinson who was also brought back from a loan spell.
It is being frequently mentioned that Alan Pardew will make Bent his number 1 signing once at Crystal Palace; this would put a bit of pressure on Derby who are also in for the forward.
After the way he has been treated at the Villa, I can’t see him staying which makes it a bonus if there is a price war (if only a small one).
