The former Sunderland striker missed the final three months of last season's Premier League as well as having to sit out England's Euro 2012 campaign.
Bent then picked up a thigh strain on Villa's tour of USA but insists that he is unconcerned, adding that he is "buzzing" to be back in action.

"It's just been good to be back among it after my time out injured at the end of the season. In the first session in pre-season I was absolutely buzzing.
"My main problem was the ankle but that's completely healed now. That feels great and I am raring to go for the season."
Paul Lambert's side rounded off their tour of America with a penalty-shootout victory over the Portland Timbers and will continue their preparations next Wednesday with a trip to Peterborough United.
