Aston Villa and Southampton are believed to be competing for the services of FC Porto's Abdoulaye Ba.

The Daily Mail suggests that the 22-year old Senegalese centre-back is wanted on loan by both the Premier League clubs with Porto looking for a fee of around £400,000.

Ba has been with Porto since 2010 and during his time has experienced loan spells with Covilha and Academica.
