Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has dismissed talk of a move to Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland.
The 25 year old England international spent four years under O’Neill at Villa Park but wants to focus on the new regime under Paul Lambert and playing alongside Darren Bent.
He told The Sun: “When you’ve played with a manager before, especially one as good as Martin O’Neill, then you are going to be linked with him.
“But it’s just pure speculation. I can assure Villa fans I haven’t heard anything about it and I’m happy here.”
