Aston Villa are eyeing Lens' want-away goalkeeper Charles Itandje.

Lens boss Gouy Roux has signed goalkeepers Vedran Runje and Ronan Le Crom, so Itandje is available.

Itandje's representatives have travelled to England to discuss a move and Villa are believed to be interested.

But it is also reported that talks will be held with Espanyol - who are gearing up to face Derby County in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.
