Acclimatising to Championship football proved a hard task for Aston Villa, despite the club investing millions of pounds into a vast array of new talents. "If I have to leave, there will be no problem", Amavi told Nice-Matin.

Villa fans will feel that their club should be back in the big time of the Premier League, and will hope for a top six finish as a minimum expectation for next season, as will chairman Xia.

L'Equipe have reported on comments made by the Aston Villa star, who confirmed he wants to find a club which is competing in all competitions, including in Europe.

"I've been placed on the transfer list".

Amavi also admitted that clubs have already come forward to discuss potential moves, though as yet no concrete bids have yet to be made for his services.

Still just 23 years old, Amavi has already been linked with Marseille, Monaco, Atletico Madrid and former club Nice.

Once described as one of the most underrated player in the Premier League while at Sunderland, the signing of Colback would give Villa one of the strongest midfield's in the Championship, teaming up with the likes of Leandro Bacuna and Mile Jedinak.

Benitez has Paul Dummett and Achraf Lazaar as left-back options but neither inspire a great deal of confidence ahead of Newcastle's return to the Premier League.

It remains to be seen if he is handed the opportunity to stay in English football.
