Aston Villa try to sign Man City's Wayne Bridge on loan
Bridge moved to Eastlands from Chelsea two years ago
Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier is interested in signing Manchester City left-back Wayne Bridge on loan for the rest of the season.
The 30-year-old, who has 18 months left on his contract, has found his chances limited at City following Aleksandar Kolarov's arrival last summer.
Houllier confirmed: "There has been dialogue [regarding Bridge]."
The Frenchman has already signed a defender with Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker joining the Villans on loan.
Houllier hopes 20-year-old Walker, who has gone straight into Villa's squad to face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday, will provide decent cover for the injured Luke Young.
Bridge meanwhile would likely replace Stephen Warnock who was dropped for Villa's 3-3 draw at Chelsea and also missed the midweek home defeat by Sunderland.
