Aly Cissokho: Not allowed to play again until next month

Aston Villa have recalled Aly Cissokho from his loan spell at Porto, the Portuguese club have confirmed on their official website.

The left-back will return to Villa, although he cannot play until January, with Jordan Amavi out for the season with a serious knee injury.

Cissokho played under boss Remi Garde at Lyon and the 49-year-old has opted to bring him back with Villa bottom of the Barclays Premier League.

Leandro Bacuna, a right-back, played on the left in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Arsenal which left Villa eight points from safety with Kieran Richardson failing to impress while deputising for Amavi.

Former Liverpool loanee Cissokho, 28, has made 27 appearances since signing from Valencia under Paul Lambert in 2014 but he has made just two league appearances for Porto this term.

He initially joined Porto on a season-long loan deal in August.

    thank god !

    at least he is a proper LB.

    not much use going forward but a very good defender .

    He played well under Garde before and has too be better than Richardson and Bacuna.

    Sadly he can’t play until January so it might be too late for him to make a difference.

    at least a proper defender might mean more clean sheets thus making it easier to win games by scoring the abysmal number of goals that we do

    proper defenders wont keep us up – successful teams have two firing goalscorers such as vardy/mahreez and deeny/ighalo .

    if we had that we would be in the top ten.

    i cant see where these goals are to come from – certainly not our midfielders.

    i cant see any new players coming in who will immediately hit the goal trail .

    its quite hopeless – unless grealish and traore step up several notches.
