Montpellier defender Daniel Congre set for Aston Villa talks Monday

Montpellier defender Daniel Congre is due in England on Monday for Aston Villa talks.

The Daily Express says the 30-year-old defender is most comfortable at centre-back but can play across the backline, and his experience is seen as the perfect antidote to Villa's current defensive problems.

Congre's contract expires in June but looks unlikely to be offered a new deal, meaning Montpellier will be happy to cash in on the player.

The player will arrive in Birmingham for talks with the club and fellow countryman Remi Garde over the next week.
