Lee Hendrie - Back Or Gone?

Interesting to see if Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie now returns to Villa Park or if Stoke (or anyone) are able to extend his loan or take him permanently.

Officially lil' Lee has played his last game for the Potters, but City manager Tony Pulis admits there is a bit of confusion over the situation.

'It was either his last game against Wednesday or on Saturday. There's a bit of conflict in the office about it, but Salif Diao and Patrik Berger are here until the middle of January.'

According to the Stoke Sentinel, Pulis said talks were already 'well advanced to try to keep the likes of Hendrie on long-term deals when the January transfer window opens next week.'

Be interesting to see if Martin O'Neill fancies Hendrie back in the team now, we are certainly still low on numbers and maybe can't expect that much movement in the January transfer window? He would surely be in last chance saloon, although he has had more last chances than I've had hot dinners to be fair!

get him back - if petrov deserves his place in the term - then so does hendrie !

Hendries Villa Park days are realistically all but over. Surely? MON has clearly displayed the attitude of someone who doesn't particularly rate the player, and with hopefully a new face or two sure to arrive over the next two or three weeks, it would seem as if Lee's future lies elsewhere.

Think MO'N needs to bring him back, especially with the current situation regarding injuries. He's got his fitness back and is in form, it would cause no harm to bring him back in my opinion.

I would like to see him back evenif it is only till the end of the season, could do an awful lot worse. Hes free to get back and give a run out, his time away may make him realise what its like in the lower divisions and sort his good game bad game problem out once and for all.

Perhaps Hendrie's time away will have had a positive effect on his attitude. In the past he has frustrated us all by getting caught up in silliness and not playing the clever game that we've seen him play from time to time. Hendrie isn't a bad shooter from the edge of the box, either, which is something we have been missing. I see no harm in giving him a try.

Stow ke look keen to keep him.

With the way our team are suffering at the moment with injuries, if Lee isn't recalled now his time at Stoke is officialy up I would see that as a definate pointer to no more Hendrie, we could definately do with his ability at the moment. UTV

Yes, we probably could Steff, but I still doubt that MON rates him.
