Kit nerds, get ready.

The world famous Under Armour are set to take control of the sewing, labelling, pressing and stitching of all your future claret & blue goodies. Aston Villa's record breaking £15 million deal with Macron expires this summer, meaning Villa CEO Tom Fox has his work cut out to replace the Italian sportswear giants. £15 million is not a shoddy sum of money at all and Aston Villa will feel that loss should a suitable replacement not be found.

Under Armour are not a name to be scoffed at in the world of sportswear manufacturing, as they are currently in business with Tottenham Hotspur to the alluring tune of £50 million. James Nursey has reported that Villa's own deal with the American company will feature reductions if the team are relegated, but the deal should still be valuable in no small way to the Villans.

So, what do you think? Let us know below!
