Aston Villa Ownership Will Change Hands If Club Stays Up, Says Report: Daily Soccer Report

Aston Villa are set for a £200million takeover by two American billionaires if the club stays up this season. Villa are currently two wins away from reaching the safety mark of 40 points in this Premier League season.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper reports that an American consortium wants to buy the club but they’ll pull out of the deal if Villa get relegated to the Championship. The new owners are interested in spending greater amounts of money in the transfer market than current American owner Randy Lerner has done thus far.

The paper reports that “Lerner paid £62.6 million for Villa eight years ago and has spent another £250 million on players and facilities. He would ideally want his money back but a £200 million offer would most likely be too good to refuse.”
