Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert wants to raid his former club Norwich City for winger Elliott Bennett, according to reports.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has reportedly targeted a summer reunion with Norwich City midfielder Elliott Bennett.

Lambert has been busy since the season finished, signing four players from the continent including Danish defender Jores Okore.

The Scot is now searching for a pacey winger and is ready to take advantage of Bennett's precarious contract situation at Carrow Road with a summer bid, according to the Daily Mail.

Bennett has less than a year left on his current Norwich contract, with Canaries boss Chris Hughton desperate to keep a consistent feature of his side from a stable campaign.

The 24-year-old made 28 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring twice to help Norwich cement their Premier League status.
