Vlla ace eyes good season
Darren Bent feels Aston Villa 'are going places' under new boss Paul Lambert and expects 'one or two additions' this summer.
Villa's record signing, who missed out on England's Euro 2012 campaign due to injury, was also absent in the latter part of last season as the side just managed to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
The disappointing campaign resulted in Alex McLeish being replaced by Lambert, who was drafted in from Norwich City where he enjoyed a very successful three seasons.
Bent is delighted with the appointment and feels, coupled with some squad strengthening in the transfer window, should see Villa become a different proposition in the new season.
He said: "We have some good youngsters coming through and this year is their chance to shine.
"With one or two additions Lambert brings in, it could be a really good year for us. Last season some of the youngsters had to come in and play five or six games straight off and they had never done that before.
"But they are a season on now and know what to expect from the Premier League. This season they will really shine and I really think Villa are going places."
