Jean II Makoun is currently on loan at French side Rennes.
Jean II Makoun arrived at Villa from French club Olympique Lyon in January 2011.
Having been snapped up by former manager Gerard Houllier, the midfielder made his debut in a 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.
He also produced an impressive display in a 3-1 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Makoun made 10 appearances in claret and blue during 2010-11.
However, he struggled to force his way into Alex McLeish's plans when the Scotsman took over the following season.
Makoun made just one appearance in a Carling Cup tie against Hereford United.
He was loaned out to Greek giants Olympiacos for the majority of the 2011-12 campaign.
The Cameroon international played 35 times for the Piraeus club, including eight outings in the Champions League.
Makoun came to England following a long stint in the French top-flight with Lille and then Lyon.
His early career was spent with Lille, for whom he made more than 150 appearances during six seasons.
In 2008-09, he transferred to Lyon where he made his mark on the Champions League stage.
The highlight of his three seasons at Lyon was the only goal in a knockout stage victory over Real Madrid at Stade Gerland.
Jean II Makoun appeared in a music video celebrating his star status with the Cameroon national side.
