Bent tells us exactly where he is on his road to recovery and how he's been pleased with the progress thus far.

He discusses his initial heartache at Wigan, the tough few weeks getting used to crutches and how everything is now falling into place.

He tells us how he's been coping with not been able to play and how frustrating it's been not donning that claret and blue shirt and banging in the goals for Villa.

He explains that there's nowhere else he's rather be than at Bodymoor Heath, though, as he looks to return in double-quick time.

The superb striker hails the medical team - doctor, physios and masseurs - as well as the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment he can call upon.

Bent also refuses to rule out a place in the Three Lions squad for Euro 2012, saying he still has high hopes he can make the plane for Ukraine and Poland.

There's also a chance for you to take a first look at his ankle brace boot, which he hopes to discard soon as he eyes the gym treadmill and training fields.
