Tony Adams 'plans Aston Villa £150m takeover

Former Arsenal defender Tony Adams plans a sensational £150million takeover of Aston Villa.

The ex-England international is understood to have approached City investors in recent weeks in a bid to raise funds for the ambitious project.

Adams, 48, is working with former IMG and Chelsea executive Paul Smith, and are also keen to buy shares in Belgium, Italy and Portugal, according to Sky News .

Randy Lerner will go ahead with his plans to sell Villa this summer despite his delight at the club reaching the FA Cup Final.

And the 53-year-old American billionaire won’t ask for any guarantees from any of the three rival consortia who have held talks about buying the club over the future of manager Tim Sherwood.

Lerner has told his chief executive Tom Fox he will be at Wembley on May 30th to see Villa face Arsenal as they try to lift the FA Cup for the first time since 1957.

That led to speculation in the States that he might do a U-turn and bring his own fresh energy to that brought by Sherwood since he took over from Paul Lambert.

But a source close to the Villa owner said: “His decision to sell was never about losing interest in the football club but more about a complete change in his lifestyle.

“He has sold his house in London, and for several years his life has been based in America. He is not the sort of person to change that position just because of a brief bit of success in the FA Cup.”
