Darren Bent has pledged his future to Aston Villa claiming "I'm tired of moving around."
Villa look like losing the services of Ashley Young - linked strongly with a move to Manchester United - while Stewart Downing is stalling over signing a new deal.
However, Bent, who joined Villa from Sunderland in January, has assured fans he is going nowhere despite former manager Gerard Houllier parting company with the club because of health reasons.
"They (the fans) don't need to worry about me. I'm tired of moving around," said Bent
"I am at Aston Villa now and I have loved every minute I have been at the club. The people are nice and the staff are nice.
"It's a shame that a big part of what brought me to the club, Gerard Houllier, has left.
"But at the same time I am committed to Aston Villa and I am looking forward to the season coming.
"Every time I go to the training ground, I get a buzz and hopefully it will continue next season."
