Aston Villa winger Charles N'Zogbia is facing a month out of action with a knee problem, manager Alex McLeish has confirmed.

N'Zogbia is to see a specialist in his native France to try and assess the extent of the setback suffered in a training ground collision with midfielder Gary Gardner last week. It adds to an already lengthy injury list with full-back Alan Hutton now on the sidelines with a calf injury.

McLeish said: "Charles is going to get specialist attention in Paris. We've just got to see if his knee ligament is going to take much longer (to heal)."
