Aston Villa to make second bid for Marseille midfielder Sanson

Aston Villa haven't dropped their pursuit of Olympique Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.

The playmaker is up for sale at OM and has already attracted a first bid from Villa this week - which was described as "pathetic" by coach Andre Villas-Boas.

Local pundit Nabil Djellit, of France Football, has revealed Villa will present an improved offer, including staggered bonuses.

The amount of the proposal would be around €11m plus €5m in bonuses.

It remains to be seen whether this will be enough to convince OM to let the player go.
