Aston Villa have been told that Eddie Nketiah would be a huge gamble of a signing in their bid to avoid Premier League relegation by Darren Bent.

Arsenal striker Nketiah was recalled from his season-long loan at Leeds earlier this month following a disappointing lack of game time at Elland Road.

Nketiah appeared in 17 Championship matches for United, netting three times, but only started twice - having previously made 19 first team appearances for Arsenal.

The Gunners are now considering where to send the 20-year-old for the second half of the campaign - with Villa, Bristol City Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest all battling for his signature.

But it is the latter trio, the Championship clubs, where Nketiah has been recommended to move to by former Premier League front man Bent.

The ex-Ipswich, Charlton, Tottenham , Sunderland and Villa star thinks a move to Villa Park would be a massive risk for both parties.

Nketiah didn't enjoy his time at Leeds

Bent told talkSPORT : “I think Aston Villa, they don't need that right now. That is a risk. They need someone who can go in there and score goals now.

“(There is speculation) about (Christian) Benteke and I think that, for me, is the perfect one to go for.

“I know he's had a bit of a tough time at Crystal Palace . But I think the Aston Villa fans will get the best out of him, because they absolutely idolised him - he was the best thing ever when he was there.

“I think if he goes there and he feels that love again, he can start scoring.

“As far as Eddie Nketiah goes, I'd go somewhere like Bristol (City) or Sheffield Wednesday, a good Championship club that have aspirations of getting promoted. Not going to someone like Aston Villa or Norwich that are desperate for wins.”

Billie Eilish to sing next James Bond theme song for No Time To Die

Billie Eilish to sing next James Bond theme song for No Time To Die

Billie Eilish has been confirmed as the artist to provide the theme song for 25th James Bond movie No Time to Die.

The 18-year-old is the youngest artist to ever provide music for the epic 007 franchise.

The news was revealed on the 007 Twitter page on Tuesday and it was told that Billie worked on the music with her brother Finneas O'Connell, 22.

The tweet read: "The #NoTimeToDie title song will be performed by @billieeilish . Billie has written the song with her brother @finneas and is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song."

The announcement comes after Hans Zimmer has been confirmed as the new composer for the film.

The legendary composer has previously scored iconic films such as The Lion King , Gladiator, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Thelma and Louis, and Dunkirk.

With the film's official confirmation of Zimmer working on the 25th James Bond, its director Cary Joji Fukunaga commented: "I'm beyond excited that Hans is scoring No Time To Die. The music of Bond has always been iconic and I've already witnessed Hans adding his touch of genius to the Bond legacy."

In a statement, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli agreed with their director: "It’s a dream come true to be working with the legendary composer Hans Zimmer on our twenty- fifth James Bond film, No Time To Die."

The new instalment to the James Bond film series will see Daniel Craig reprise the lead role for one final time.

The plot sees James Bond forced out of retirement when he receives a visit from CIA operative and old ally Felix Leiter ( Jeffrey Wright ), who needs help recovering a kidnapped scientist from a dangerous new foe with sinister plans.

The new quest sees the former 007 reunited with his MI6 comrades, defeated arch enemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld ( Christoph Waltz ), and estranged lover Dr Madeleine Swann ( Lea Seydoux ).

However, Swann's past could destroy James as he comes face to face with the dangerous Safin ( Rami Malek ).

The new film also stars Lashana Lynch as MI6 agent Nomi, Ben Whishaw as tech guru Q, Naomie Harris as Bond ally Eve Moneypenny, Ana de Armas as CIA agent Paloma, and Ralph Fiennes as the MI6 chief known as M.

Whatever happens, we can expect some epic music to accompany Craig in his final film as Bond.

*No Time To Die is released in UK cinemas on April 2, 2020.

Conor McGregor UFC news: John Kavanagh tells of heartbreak over Notorious' brushes with law

Conor McGregor UFC news: John Kavanagh tells of heartbreak over Notorious' brushes with law

MMA coach John Kavanagh said that he was left "heartbroken" by Conor McGregor’s recent brushes with the law, one of which saw the star fined €1,000 for striking a man in a pub.

Kavanagh, who was speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, described McGregor as his "kid brother" and said that he was worried that he would live up to the stereotype of world champion fighters who spiral out of control.

Kavanagh said: “It was heartbreaking. You fear the worst.

"You fear that they’re going to become that age old stereotype; someone getting it all and then losing it all. Everyone around him were all worried.”

The Notorious was convicted of assualt in the Marble Arch pub in Dublin last year and fined €1,000.

The fighter, who pleaded guilty, apologised in court, adding: “Nothing of this nature will happen again.”

McGregor, however, is now in the best shape of his career ahead of his comeback fight against Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas on Saturday, according to Kavanagh, and he believes that it is imperative for the Notorious’ mental wellbeing.

“This is who he is. It’s him at his healthiest, physically and mentally, when he’s in training camp,” Kavanagh said.

“The motivations are healthy. That’s him at his best. What else was he going to do? He’s not going to take up golf and sit around all day. He’s obsessed with this sport, this lifestyle.

“It’s good for him to be in the professional element of MMA. It keeps him on track.”

Kavanagh said that he feared that his journey with the former two-weight world champion was nearing its end after McGregor had beaten Eddie Alvarez and conquered the lightweight division in November 2016.

“I found it hard to see a reason [to fight again]. I’m glad he did find his reason, but I just didn’t see it at the time. I’ll be honest, I started focusing on the next wave of guys.”

The Straight Blast Gym coach also said that McGregor’s previous training camp in the lead up to his grudge match with Khabib Nurmagomedov was driven by all the wrong reasons.

“It was not good. The whole training camp was driven by revenge and by venom,” Kavanagh said.
