Report outlines how far Villa are prepared to go to discipline Agbonlahor

Gabriel Agbonlahor

The 29-year-old could leave Villa sooner than many are expecting.

Aston Villa are looking into sacking Gabriel Agbonlahor, according to the Daily Mirror.

Indeed, reports suggest the Midlands club are so frustrated by the forward's behaviour that they would like to terminate his contract at Villa Park.

There is little surprise at how far Villa are prepared to go and few fans will complain if the 29-year-old is allowed to leave.

The Mirror report that Agbonlahor's future is under immediate threat as Aston Villa have lost patience with both his on-field performances and off-field antics.

The forward has recently been given a personalised fitness programme because his match sharpness is so low, while he was pictured on a night out after Villa's relegation was confirmed last weekend.

Agbonlahor, Joleon Lescott and Micah Richards have far from covered themselves in glory off the pitch this season.

But neither has owner Randy Lerner, after the resignation of key figures yesterday who cited their inability to implement much-needed change at Aston Villa - due to a lack of support from the owner.
