Aston Villa Avert Threat Of Administration Following Unpaid Tax Bill

Joao Cancelo

It is understood that the club will pay the outstanding amount within the next 48 hours.

It has also emerged, following discussion with confidential sources, that - whilst Villa's owner, Tony Xia, is prepared to sell the club for the right price - his preferred option is to find new investors to work alongside him, so that he remains in overall control.

Villa are anxious about breaching Financial Fair Play rules unless they making savings of around £40m next season, and infighting at the club led to the suspension of chief executive Keith Wyness on Tuesday.

The Scotsman took over the role at Villa Park in August 2016, having previously held similar roles at both Everton and Aberdeen.

Leroy Sané left out of Germany's World Cup squad
Manuel Neuer is in as one of three goalkeepers , and will lead Germany's defence of their World Cup crown. Still, to not take Sane to the World Cup at all seems... a little imprudent.

Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is now in limbo as the club begin to come to terms with the financial crisis they have fallen into, according to The Telegraph.

Villa's financial struggles have come after of their failure to attain promotion to the Premier League this season, with club chairman Tony Xia feeling the sting of investing heavily in the squad only to see his side lose to Fulham in the Championship play-off final two weeks ago.

Owner Xia has confirmed the club faces "severe FFP (Financial Fair Play) challenges" and that Villa needs to be a sustainable club.

In short, Villa need a stabilising influence and they need it quickly with the squad needing drastic surgery to prepare for a third season in the Championship.
