The Aston Villa fans who are gathered around the jukebox in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports for a potential takeover have entered the final stages.
The Birmigham Mail is reporting that the talks with the potential new owners are at more advanced stage the the club’s chairman Steve Hollis led everyone to believe.
With American owner Randy Lerner desperate to sell the Midlands club following their relegation to the Championship, it is believed that the Chinese consortium are close to agreeing the £100 million sale.
This will be great news to the fans at Villa Park, who have seen the once great club hit a sharp decline since Lerner arrived at the club and will be hoping that the potential new owners have the club’s best interests at heart.
The Villa fans in The Tavern are hopeful that the takeover goes through but know not to celebrate until the ink is dry on a contract.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern thinks that this is fantastic news for the Midlands club, and will undoubtedly give fans hope about the future!
