Villa have reportedly sounded out Papa Diakhate, the Senegal and Dynamo Kiev centre half, but at the moment the player is hoping to tie up a move to Olympique Marseille.

Diakhate (24) moved from Nancy to Kiev two years ago and he is now hankering for a return to the French League, although he wouldn't rule out a move to England.

'Many clubs have enquired about me. I have had plenty of possibilities in France and other leagues, notably in England, but at the moemnt I am concentrating solely on OM,' he said.


As well as Villa, Portsmouth and even Arsenal are thought to be the clubs who have made enquiries about him.

Marseille expect to bring in a central defnder this week, but their initial offer of 6 million euros for Diakhate was deemed insufficient.Kiev are thought to be demanding at least 8 million.
