Lisbon: French international left-back Aly Cissokho has returned to former club FC Porto on loan from Aston Villa, the Portuguese side announced on their website on Wednesday.
Aston Villa added on Twitter that the 27-year-old had moved to the Estadio do Dragao on a season-long loan.
Cissokho first made his name at Porto before being sold to Lyon in 2009. He has since played for Valencia and had a spell on loan at Liverpool before joining Villa last year.
He has been capped once by France, in a friendly in Norway in August 2010.
