Former Aston Villa midfielder Charles N’Zogbia is closing on a move to French club Nantes, according to the Birmingham Mail.
N.Zogbia trained with Sunderland earlier this summer but is closing in on a move to Ligue 1.
The 30-year-old is currently a free agent after his contract at Villa Park expired at the end of June.
The Frenchman spent part of pre-season training with Sunderland but they decided against offering him a deal.
Now, according to L’Equipe, N’Zogbia has agreed personal terms with Nantes and will sign with them in the coming days.
The former Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic man will reportedly pen a one-year contract with the French club.
