With Aston Villa’s future continuing to be in doubt for many fans who more naturally fear the worst, there is finally a firm piece of news today that may provide some relief, albeit short-term once again.
With financial issues well covered, I don’t need to repeat the stories of the last few weeks, but recently there was speculation that bills due at the end of the month were taken care of as Dr Tony Xia scampers around for finance and small investors.
There was no indication as to how the bills had been taken care of but there was a heavier swing away from small investors to a potential full sale – which is obvious given how long this has now been rumbling on.
We may have an answer to where the cash came from thanks to the Birmingham Mail a short time ago this afternoon.
They have been keeping their eye on Companies House documents and it appears our relationship with Macquarie Bank Limited has another string to it. Fans may remember the name from:
Having reportedly sold ‘future income due’ to the bank for the outstanding portion of the Jordan Amavi deal in return for a quick cash infusion, we have now apparently done the same on the outstanding payment for Jordan Veretout.

You can make your own minds up on what this actually means moving forward but it’s another sticking plaster in my mind.
