Aston Villa in takeover rumour

Aston Villa could be in line for a £200m takeover if the club remains in the Premier League, ESPN has reported.


Randy Lerner


Two United States-based investors are rumoured to be keen on making an offer to Randy Lerner, the current owner of the Midlands club, but will only do so if Villa can avoid dropping into the Championship.


Paul Lambert’s side are currently 14th in the table, four points clear of the bottom three with four games to go. Villa next play Southampton, at home on Saturday. Villa do however have a game in hand on most of the teams around them and have a goal difference substantially better than the three teams in the relegation zone.


Lambert’s future should the takeover go ahead is unknown but the investors, so far unnamed, would spend on new players.


Villa have been linked with a takeover in recent months - as recently as March chief executive Paul Faulkner dismissed speculation that Lerner was looking to offload the club. Lerner bought Villa from Doug Ellis in 2006, paying Ellis £62.6m.
