Aston Villa and Southampton have reportedly made bids to sign Porto defender Abdoulaye Ba before the transfer window closes.

The Daily Mail reports that both clubs are interested in signing the defender on loan.

Porto want a 400,000 loan fee for the highly-rated centre-back.

The Portuguese side could decide to cancel a deal, should they sell Chelsea target Eiaquim Managala before the transfer window closes.
