St Etienne

The Saint-Etienne defender is wanted at Aston Villa this summer.

Aston Villa target Florentin Pogba has stated today that he wants to stay at Saint-Etienne. He told Goal today that he was in discussions with Les Verts to remain at the club:

"I'm in talks to extend. I'd like that. I have one year. We'll see."

Aston Villa are said to be looking at centre-back options for this summer with Pogba reported by L'Equipe to be a target for Aston Villa.

The Guinean international, who can also play at left-back, is currently in contract with Les Verts until 2016.

Of course he has a famous younger brother. While his twin brother Mathias is currently a striker for Crawley Town while his younger brother is Paul Pogba.

The former Manchester United midfielder is one of the most talented midfielders in the world and is often linked with big money moves away from Italian giants Juventus.

He is said to be a top talent, with a future in the game similar to that of Paul's, however it looks like Tim Sherwood is going to miss out on securing the player this summer.

Villa are looking like losing Ron Vlaar, whose contract is expiring this summer, whilst the likes of Jores Okore, Ciaran Clark and Nathan Baker have all had their injury troubles in the past couple of seasons.
