Here are the teams Villa will play this summer!

Games against Middlesbrough and Nantes cap off a rather plain affair.

Aston Villa have today released their list of pre-season exhibition games which will feature as a prelude to their 16/17 Football League Championship season.

Friendly v AFC Telford (A) - 12pm Saturday July 16

Friendly v Worcester City (At Walshes Meadow, Stourport) - 3pm Saturday July 16

Friendly v Bristol Rovers (A) - 7.45pm Wednesday July 20

Friendly v FC Nantes (At Stade Leo Lagrange, Saint Nazaire) - Saturday July 23

Friendly v Cambridge United (A) - 7.30pm Tuesday July 26

Friendly v Middlesbrough (H) - 3pm Saturday July 30

Villa will spend five days in Austria preparing for the stream of July fixtures which include two headline games against FC Nantes (Jordan Veretout's old team) and newly promoted Middlesbrough at Villa Park.

Interestingly enough, Villa will trot out two separate sides on the same day to face Telford and Worcester respectively.

This release all but seems to confirm that Villa will appoint a new manager very soon.
