Aly Cissokho: Spent last season on loan at Liverpool

The France international left-back was on loan at Liverpool last season, and now looks set for another stint in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old former Lyon man earned his one international cap in 2011 and moved to Valencia the following year after spells with Porto and Vitoria Setubal.

He would fill a hole in defence for Villa manager Paul Lambert, who has already signed Joe Cole, Philippe Senderos and Kieran Richardson this summer.

Villa are believed to have agreed a fee in the region of £2-3m for Cissokho, who had two years remaining on his Valencia contract.

He made 15 Premier League appearances for Liverpool last season but the move was not an unmitigated success, and he did not feature a great deal during the title run-in.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
