Remi Garde wants to add experience to his squad in the January transfer window and the Aston Villa manager is interested in bringing Ashley Cole back to the Barclays Premier League.
Garde has only been in the job a month but already knows his team are entrenched in a relegation battle. Villa are bottom of the table with six points from 15 games - a position no Premier League side has ever survived from.
"I will speak soon with the club. I am already working on the January window," said Garde ahead of Sunday's home against his former club Arsenal.
"We know what we want to do. I feel we will need to improve the team to get more chances (of staying up).
"Experience is something we need. Ashley is someone who has experience but he didn't play for a while now.
"Every good player is interesting for me and he is a good player.
"We are going to try to improve the team in the transfer window but that is all I am going to say today. We have other games to try to win and I am only focused on that."
Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has returned to first-team training, manager Remi Garde has confirmed.
The midfielder was dropped from the team earlier as punishment for his off-field behaviour.
Garde had said: 'This is not the professional standard I expect of my players'.
Jack Grealish's Aston Villa first team exile continues after boss Remi Garde confirmed he will remain with the under-21s for the time being.
The midfielder will not play at Southampton on Saturday as he serves his punishment after being pictured in a nightclub following the 4-0 defeat at Everton almost two weeks ago.
Press Association Sport revealed on Monday the 20-year-old would link up with the under-21s again after missing the 3-2 defeat to Watford on Saturday.
Villa are bottom of the Barclays Premier League and seven points from the safety line but Garde will not call on Grealish to help them at St Mary's.
He has trained this week with the under-21s because it was the plan. He knew that. I know when he might return, he knows as well and when he will I will tell you.
Like every player Jack made a mistake and he has to pay the consequences for that. If another player does something wrong he will have the same treatment.
Jack is young and will be back because when he is fully committed in his job he will be a good player.
