'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Midfielder May Need To Leave

Lee Hendrie has admitted for the first time that he may have to leave Villa Park.

The 28 year old midfielder joined Villa as a trainee in 1994 and has since gone on to make 200 appearances for the Lions. But following a stop start season, he is assessing his options following links to several other Premiership Clubs.

David O'Leary said earlier in the week that Hendrie has no one but himself to blame, Click Here For O'Leary Comments
, but Hendrie insists there has been no fall out with the manager. 'We've not had a fall-out. I've never had a rift with the gaffer, but I don't want to be a back-up option at 28.'

Hendrie said: 'Am I getting to the stage where I might have to leave? Possibly' Adding: 'I don't want to waste a season. That's my main issue. I don't want to go a full season, look back and think I've made six or seven appearances....'I've looked at the last few seasons and I've played 20-plus games all the time. I don't want to waste a season. That's my main issue. I want to play football. Who in their right mind doesn't want to play football? I'd love to play football here every week.'

He also says he knows all he can do is to keep trying to impress in training.

'There is nothing I can say to the manager. I can't go in and say `play me' because the gaffer is going to make his decisions. All I can do is keep giving him a headache and let my football do the talking. I don't want to go in there ranting and raving because I've got a good understanding with the gaffer. If we've got a problem, we speak about it and that's the way we have been over the period he's been here.'
