If you thought things couldn't get any worse for Remi Garde and his Aston Villa side, you'd be wrong.

According to reports made by the Mirror, the rock-bottom Premier League side have had an approach for PSG's goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu rejected - not by the club - but the player himself.

It is understood that the club had contacted PSG and Sirigu's representatives about the possibility of a move to the Midlands side but he has apparently turned around and said he doesn't want to join the Villians because he fears they are doomed.

It's a move that will stutter Remi Garde's changes to the side as he looks to replace current number one Brad Guzan due the American's costly mistakes so far this season.

It's a bitter blow for Aston Villa, who sit 11 points from safety in the league, as it is starting to show they are failing to bring in the necessary players to fight against relegation and confounding thoughts they won't be able to beat the drop.

The PSG shot-stopper, who was ever-present last season, has found himself on the outskirts of Laurent Blanc's first team this season and is widely thought to be pushing a move away from Parc des Princes in the hopes of gaining first team football elsewhere, with Euro 2016 coming up in the summer.

For the Italian to make the 23-man squad for the finals, he would need to make a move away, which according to various reports, the keeper has a number of different offers on the table, but the one from Aston Villa is not one he is prepared to consider.
