Tottenham Hotspur consider January move for Aston Villa newbie

Tottenham Hotspur is believed to be targeting Aly Cissokho to add to their ranks despite the fact that he only joined Aston Villa in the summer, Mirror reports.

The 27-year-old was on loan from Valencia at Liverpool during the previous campaign and has now become a first team regular at Villa Park, appearing in all 17 Premier League matches this season.

His form has been on a rise and is now on the transfer radar of Tottenham as well as Serie A side Napoli, both of whom are keen on making a move in the January window.

Cissokho only recently signed a four-year contract with the Villians and based on his regular role under Paul Lambert, it is unlikely that he will be considering a departure any time soon.

However, Lambert is already said to be preparing possible replacements should the French left-back decide to leave the club, a switch that could be influenced by Villa’s league form.
