VILLA TO SIGN TWO PLAYERS
Aston Villa are reportedly close to signing two players in the January transfer window. Houllier will fly to France to speak to Lyon about the prospects of capturing the 27-year-old Cameroon player.
"He can play as a holding player or as a box-to-box midfielder," Houllier said. "We are working on [the deal]."
Houllier also remains interested in signing Blackpool captain Charlie Adam after making an improved £3.5m bid.
