Paul Lambert is expected to continue as manager of Aston Villa despite the uncertainty surrounding the ownership of the club at present, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Earlier in May, owner Randy Lerner announced in a statement that he was to put the club up for sale this summer after eight years at the helm, and in recent days he has held talks with Lambert and the club’s chief executive Paul Faulker in the United States.

There, they discussed Villa’s short-term plans, with Lambert wanting guarantees from Lerner that he will be given money to spend this summer in order to avoid being involved in another relegation battle.

Lambert has spent two years at Villa Park, overhauling the club’s playing staff and significantly reducing the wage bill by signing mainly young players from the Football League or abroad. The Scot’s faith in youth has led to inconsistent performances on the pitch and two 15th place finishes in the Premier League,

He is now expected to stay after Lerner was forced to abandon his initial plans of vetoing any new contracts or major transfers, instead offering new deals to midfielder Gary Gardner and winger Marc Albrighton.
