Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert insists he has no interest in allowing out-of-favour keeper Shay Given to go out on loan.

Given has lost his place this season to Brad Guzan and his only appearances since August have been in the League Cup ties with Manchester City and Swindon and could face Norwich tonight in the League Cup quarter-final.

But Lambert is adamant he needs two quality keepers at his disposal and that the competition drives them both on.

"I'm just happy to have two quality goalkeepers here."
