He has only appeared once for Villa this season when he scored in their Capital One Cup victory over Notts County.

Bennett also made 42 appearances during a season-long loan spell at Brighton last year, scoring one goal.

He has not played any first-team football since August when he picked up an Achilles injury shortly after joining Bournemouth on loan.
