Lambert keen on Albrighton talks

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is willing to sit down with young midfielder Marc Albrighton in a bid to keep him at the club.

I'll definitely sit down and talk to him [Albrighton].

It's just the way things have worked out with games, his injuries, one after the other, but I know he's out of contract, so I'll sit down with him.

Every time he has come on for me he has done well. He's just been really unlucky with his injuries which have kept him out for a long spell.

But he was excellent on Saturday. He put some great balls in, he hit the post and set up the chance for Christian (Benteke) when he hit the bar.

He was a plus point, the one really bright spot for us.
