Aston Villa are planning to bid for unsettled Ghana international Anthony Annan, according to reports.

Aston Villa are planning to swoop for Ghanaian midfielder Anthony Annan after Schalke 04 told him that he could look for a new club, according to reports.

The 26-year-old has not played for Schalke during pre-season after spending last term on loan in Holland with Vitesse Arnhem.

The Ghana international admitted that he will need to find a new club to play regular football this season.

He told Sky Sports News: "I have not been called up for any pre-season games, it's embarrassing.

"There has been some contact from clubs but I have two years on my contract with the German club, so we will have to see what happens."

Villa boss Paul Lambert is understood to be a big admirer of Annan and will make a formal enquiry to bring the player to the Premier League.
