Benfica are in talks with Aston Villa for midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba.

The Cameroon midfield player is expected to cost the Portuguese club about £700,000. Djemba-Djemba, who was on loan to Burnley last season, has never established himself in England since joining Manchester United for £3.5 million from Nantes in 2003. He moved to Villa for £1.35 million two years ago but made only 13 starting appearances in the league.
