Aly Cissokho was recalled from his loan to Porto to join a struggling Aston Villa defense but his return didn't help in Villa's 3-1 loss to Sunderland.
Sunderland have a pretty bad attack but that didn't matter much against Aston Villa. Patrick van Aanholt opened up the scoring and Jermain Defoe added two more late to finish Villa off. The starting back four of Hutton, Richards, Lescott, and Cissokho shouldn't get another start, and I would imagine Remi Garde will be making changes for the next match. If Cissokho starts again, he will be a DFS option as he put in four crosses last week and has the potential to contribute in attack. Sun, Jan 3, 2016 05:19:00 PM

Aston Villa defender Aly Cissokho has joined Porto on a season-long loan, according to SkySports.

Cissokho had lost his place in the Aston Villa rotation, especially with Jordan Amavi coming into the squad, and Villa found a way to ship him out for a year. Cissokho will have a chance to recoup some of his value while at Porto and Villa are hoping he plays well enough to where they can sell him next summer. This is a win for everyone.

Aly Cissokho could return this weekend after training this week.

Cissokho has missed time with a groin injury but is back at training and has a chance to return to the lineup this weekend. We think it will be Matthew Lowton who gets the start with Cissokho getting a spot on the bench but with the situation lacking clarity, we would avoid both in fantasy this weekend.

Aly Cissokho could compound Aston Villa's defensive issues if he isn't able to recover from a knock in time to face Newcastle on Saturday.

With Kieran Richardson out with a calf issue, Cissokho is the next in line to play left back for the Villains. With Ron Vlaar definitely missing through suspension and Nathan Baker, Alan Hutton and Philippe Senderos all uncertain as well it could be a makeshift defense that faces the Magpies. Even if more than one of the doubts manages to start it seems certain that Villa's defense will be at something less than it's best.

Aston Villa has officially announced the capture of Valencia left back Aly Cissokho on a four-year deal.

Needing to replace the departed Ryan Bertrand who was on loan from Chelsea for the second half of last season, Aston Villa have purchased former Liverpool loanee Aly Cissokho. Cissokho failed to make a great impression at Anfield last season but he will likely be given more leeway at Villa Park as there are fewer options available if he fails to impress. Cissokho has to be considered a spot starter at best for fantasy managers considered only when Villa have favorable match-ups.

Aston Villa have been relatively quiet in the transfer market but appear close to signing former Liverpool loanee Aly Cissokho to replace Ryan Bertrand after his loan spell expired.

Aston Villa need to strengthen significantly if they hope to avoid a relegation scrape this season. The club did not play well after Christian Benteke's injury and have done little to inspire hope so far this summer. Anyone who saw Aly Cissokho last season will be hard pressed to improve their opinion of Villa's transfer activities if the Valencia man is the next big move.

Aly Cissokho, back from injury and making the left wing-back spot his own, is enjoying playing that role, and playing for Liverpool.

Cissokho provided the assist for Luis Suarez's stunning 20-yard header against West Brom, and will be an attractive fantasy option going forward. It doesn't hurt that he's half the price of his opposite number, Glen Johnson.

Aly Cissokho, like fellow fullback Glen Johnson, has been training with Liverpool over the international break and is ready to return to the first team.

Cissokho, who injured himself on his Liverpool debut, will be available to face Newcastle United this weekend. Liverpool will have options in defense now in terms of both players and formations. It will be interesting, yet nervous times for fantasy managers, to see what Brendan Rodgers considers to be his best back line.

Aly Cissokho, who lasted ten minutes in his Liverpool debut before being injured, is "still a few weeks away yet, but working hard" according to Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool are paper thin at full back, with only Jose Enrique fit. Andre Wisdom is expected to fill in across from the Spainard as cover for the injured Glen Johnson.

Aly Cissokho only last 10 minutes in his Liverpool debut against Notts County in the League Cup.

Cissokho was replaced by Daniel Agger, and it remains to be seen how severe of an injury he suffered. Jose Enrique will all but surely line up against Manchester United this weekend.

Loan signing Aly Cissokho wants to help Liverpool back into the Champions League.

Cissokho played against Liverpool in the Champions League when he was with Lyon. Now he'll compete with Jose Enrique for the left back spot in Brendan Rodger's system - which emphasizes attacking full-backs.
