Bristol City are interested in making a move for Aston Villa midfielder Henri Lansbury, according to the Mirror.
Lansbury has been left out of every matchday squad in the Premier League this season, and his future at Villa Park looks uncertain.
The 30-year-old’s only game time has come in the Carabao Cup, making starting appearances against Burton Albion, Stoke City and Bristol City.

The latter – who have also been linked with Keinan Davis – are now said to be interested in signing Lansbury.
According to the Mirror, Lansbury looks set to quit Villa this month with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
It remains to be seen whether Villa allow the midfielder to leave either permanently or on a temporary loan basis this month.
Lansbury has scored two goals in 53 games for Villa since arriving from Nottingham Forest for £2.7million in 2017.
The Robins are now showing an interest in the midfielder, as Dean Holden looks to add more quality in depth to his squad.
Lansbury is a shadow of the player he once was at Forest, and his lack of game time must have really had an impact on him.
The 30-year-old needs a move away, and I am surprised one hasn’t materialised before now to be quite honest.
Bristol City could do with adding another midfielder to their squad, and if they can get acquire him on a permanent basis this month, then it would be a positive addition.
