Aston Villa defender Frederic Guilbert has agreed a loan move to Strasbourg, Football Insider can reveal.

The 26-year-old has not featured in the Premier League this season after the arrival of Matty Cash in the summer.

Guilbert came close to leaving Villa Park earlier this window only to reject a loan move to Cardiff City at the eleventh hour.

Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir were also in talks over a temporary deal this month but that also failed to materialise.

This site revealed at the end of December that Dean Smith hoped to offload the Frenchman temporarily until the end of the season.
