A few reports have suggested that Aston Villa’s new manager Martin O’Neill will sign an extended contract once it is confirmed that Randy Lerner takes full control of the club.

Happy days.

  • It is reported by Sky that should the Lerner deal go through, Martin O’Neill will be offered a six-year contract, the longest in Premiership history. It will be interesting to see if MO’N signs it. I have long thought that he was destined for the Man U jo
