Sorry to be the bearer of bad news… I’m afraid star player Habib Beye has left Aston Villa by mutual consent.

Yet another of the mad buys from Martin O’Neill.

A club statement read:

Aston Villa can confirm that defender Habib Beye has left by mutual agreement with the club.

The 34-year-old Senegal international is free to make permanent his move to Doncaster Rovers.

Beye joined the Championship club on an emergency loan in November 2011.

He made 15 starts at Villa and three more appearances as a substitute having arrived from Newcastle in August 2009.
