Foot Mercato report tonight that Aston Villa midfielder Morgan Sanson is looking to engineer a return to France, in light of his lack of game time with the Premier League side this season.
However, the 28-year-old, who has just the one substitute appearance this season, has turned down two approaches from Ligue 1 sides in Strasbourg and Auxerre.
Sanson has told his club he wants to leave, and the Villans will not stand in the former French youth international’s way should a loan offer come in. A return to his former club Marseille, who he left for England 2020, would be the midfielder’s preferred outcome, but OM are currently not interested in bringing him back.
The midfielder is also open to a return to another one of his former clubs in Montpellier, who have yet to make a decision on his potential signing. Meanwhile, Nantes have Sanson among their potential January targets.
