McLeish warns Liverpool off Bent
Bent came under fire from Villa fans last month when, having picked up an injury that ruled him out of action, he was pictured shopping during the club's defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League.
Kenny Dalglish is rumoured to be weighing up a bid for the England international, with Reds forward Luis Suarez poised to miss eight games for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
Bent returned to action against Chelsea at the weekend, scoring the third as Villa claimed a shock 3-1 victory at Stamford Bridge. And after watching the £24 million hitman find the net, McLeish said: "He won't be leaving."
