New Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce could be ready to bring Gabby Agbonlahor in from the cold.
Agbonlahor has been banished from the first-team squad this season and has not played for the club since March.
But Bruce said: “I’m not really interested in what has happened in the past. As far as I’m concerned this is under my remit.
“Of course managers get problems to deal with but at this moment in time I’ve got none. I’ve only been here for 24 hours and as far as I’m concerned the slate is wiped clean for all of them.
“We start again tomorrow. That obviously means Gabby too. He’s had his problems and it’s fair to say he and I have got to get him into some condition, but that applies to him too.”
