Marseille have begun negotiations with Aston Villa over a loan move for Idrissa Gueye.
The midfielder only moved to Villa Park last summer after spending five years with Lille.
But the 26-year-old could already be on his way back to France as, according to RMC, Marseille want to take him on loan.
The Ligue 1 club have now contacted Villa and the pair have begun talks ahead of a summer switch.
Gueye is keen to leave Villa after they were relegated to the Championship and the club are happy to let him go as they look to reduce their wage bill.
