Agent reveals Aston Villa talks for Porto's Defour

The agent of Porto midfielder Steven Defour has confirmed contact with Aston Villa.

Paul Stefani has revealed talks have been opened with Villa about a January move.

"I confirm that there is interest and we talked with the English club, but it is not possible to talk about a deal at an advanced stage or with a closure imminent, it is not that tomorrow there will be signatures, we've made only the first steps," he told

"Can they loan him? I think the initial idea is that of a permanent transfer, but if it does not unlock the situation, then Porto may also consider a loan."
