Aston Villa are monitoring Morgan Amalfitano's situation at Lorient.

The Birmingham Mail says Amalfitano is not thought to be a priority with Villa most keen to strengthen their defence, but they are exploring the possibility of signing him on a free transfer from Lorient.

The midfielder is out of contract at the Ligue 1 club in the summer and Villa are among a number of European clubs to express an interest in him.

Amalfitano scored the winner in Lorient's 3-2 victory against Lens at the weekend.
