Aston Villa's Agbonlahor asks to relinquish captaincy

London, April 29, (GNA/dpa) - Aston Villa say Gabriel Agbonlahor has asked to step down as captain of the relegated Premier league club.

The 29-year-old had been suspended by the club for his attitude but will be available for their remaining three matches.

"The player has received a substantial fine and been reminded of his responsibilities as a professional footballer at Aston Villa," the club said in a statement.

"His suspension is now lifted and he will be available for selection from Monday."

Villa have already been relegated from the Premier League, with just 16 points from 35 games.
