A player who will be considered one of Aston Villa's worst ever buys is set to leave on loan in January, according to the Telegraph.
Charles N'Zogbia has endured a nightmare spell at Villa Park since signing in 2011, but that could all be about to change with Greece outfit AEK Athens touted as the possible destination.
AEK, who are managed by former Sunderland boss Gus Poyet, currently sit second in the Greek Super League and it is thought that N'Zogbia would relish the chance for a new beginning.

Reports suggest the French winger is earning £65,000-per-week at Villa, making just 63 appearances for the club during his four-year stint.
N'Zogbia has often struggled for game time since his £9.5 million move, with former managers Alex McLeish, Paul Lambert and current boss Remi Garde all seemingly unwilling to give the 29-year-old a chance.
Garde said of the potential deal: "Charles is a player that could leave the club but this is his decision mainly. I’ve had some phone calls for him.
"You can never say it is his last game. You never know in football, but for the moment he’s not playing for me."
Poyet and AEK are reportedly keeen on N'Zogbia, whose contract at Villa expires at the end of the season - something that looks likely to be renewed.
The player is also understood to have received offers from the MLS.
