Agathe leaves Villa after failing to impress

Aston Villa have parted company with midfielder Didier Agathe.

Agathe, who had played for Villa manager Martin O'Neill at Celtic, was signed on a short-term contract in September - after impressing during an initial trial period.

But the 31-year-old was restricted to just six appearances as a substitute - the last of which was in the goalless draw at Wigan on November 19.

Villa have decided not to extend the contract of the Frenchman, who had a trial period at Blackburn earlier in the summer.
