Tony Xia and Recon are ready to announce Aston Villa's new manager

Villa are ready to move forward, quickly

With it all being over. With it all being done. Aston Villa are a few signatures away from transferring ownership. It's finally over.

Randy Lerner's poor stewardship of the club will now pass over to Tony Xia and his Recon group who are already prepared to make an imminent impact on Birmingham's footballing landscape. They are, according to Sky Sports, prepared to announce their manager who will lead Aston Villa (hopefully) back to the Premier League.

Damian Comolli is set to be introduced as Villa's Technical Director whilst Villa's manager will either be Nigel Pearson or Roberto Di Matteo, both of which are assumed to be happy with working under Comolli.

Tony Xia purchased Villa moments ago for the sum of £60 million, which is an incredible loss for Randy Lerner on an English football establishment which should have sold for around £100 million, considering that there's no debt and Villa Park is owned by the club.v
