Villa chairman in China for takeover talks

Date published: Wednesday 18th May 2016 3:44

Aston Villa chairman Steve Hollis is in China to finalise the sale of the club.

Hollis, who was appointed in mid-January, has been working on a deal to sell Villa for several weeks and it is hoped an announcement might be forthcoming.

Four buyers had expressed an interest in the club but Hollis has focused on the Chinese consortium and talks have reached an advanced stage – so much so that the potential new owners are understood to want to pick the club’s new manager.
