Villa star happy with City link
Lee Hendrie looks to have a choice between Leicester City, Stoke City and Coventry City as his next club after ending his long association with Aston Villa.
The free agent 30-year-old wants a quick decision on his future and told the official Villa website: 'Milan Mandaric is ambitious to take Leicester back to the Premiership and they are a big club, as are Coventry, so it's nice to be linked with them.
'If my agent rings me tomorrow with something worthwhile, then great.
'I've never been in this situation before - I've always has a year or two left on my contract and signed an extension, so this is a new experience.
'But what clubs will be getting from me is a hungry player on a free transfer, so I'm hoping I'm in a good position for clubs to be interested.'
