Former Aston Villa and England striker Gabby Agbonlahor has retired from football dated 32.

Agbonlahor had been without a team since leaving Championship unwanted Villa by the close of last season, his last appearance coming in December 2017.

He scored 86 goals in 391 looks for Villa, while he also won three senior caps for England.

“The time has come to retire watching Aston Villa being a fan,” Agbonlahor posted on Instagram.

“When I’d have been told at school I’d play almost 400 league matches, function as record Premier League goal scorer for Aston Villa, captain that the great club and reflect England at senior point, I’d have laughed.

“I would like to say thank you to all of the supporters, the staff I have caused at a excellent club and my ex-team-mates.

“The idea of playing for another club or playing Aston Villa was something that I simply couldn’t do. I look forward to what the future holds.”

Agbonlahor was a crucial part of the Villa team which finished sixth at the top flight for three consecutive seasons between 2007-08 and 2009 10.

He also played inside their 2010 League Cup final loss to Manchester United and came from the seat inside their 2015 FA Cup final defeat by Arsenal.
