The England striker has endured a disappointing start to the season and had been tipped to leave Villa Park after being rooted to the substitutes' bench for the majority of the current campaign.
However, a Villa spokesperson has denied any rift between the 28-year-old and manager Paul Lambert.
"There is not a problem," the spokesman told the Daily Express.
"The manager has explained why he has not selected Darren for the last two games and has said his door is open if the player wants to discuss the matter."
Liverpool and Queens Park Rangers have both been linked with a move for the forward.
