Aston Villa battling Marseille for Leicester defender Bamba

Aston Villa have made a move for Leicester City defender Sol Bamba.

L'Sport says Marseille, along with Villa, are front-runners for Bamba's signature.

Villa have submitted a bid of £2.6m while the French club have sent scouts to watch the former Paris Saint-Germain player in action.

Bamba only moved to Sven Goran Eriksson's side in January from Scottish side Hibernian signing a deal until 2013, however he has previously stated he is flattered to have been linked with a switch to the Premier League.
