Aston Villa suspend CEO Keith Wyness after reportedly missing normal tax payment

Aston Villa suspend CEO Keith Wyness after reportedly missing normal tax payment

Villa already need to find £40 million in order to comply with Financial Fair Play, which may see them needing to sell a player in order to fund that necessity.

Aston Villa have put a £30 million price tag on their key attacking midfielder Jack Grealish as they look to generate as much money as possible to battle their financial woes.

The 22-year-old has also been linked with Leicester City, West Ham United and Everton.

It had been claimed that HRMC has issued a winding up order against Aston Villa after the club missed a tax payment, but the Championship side have been given a period of a week to make the payment to avoid facing the order.

Aston Villa's Chinese owner who bought the club from American Randy Lerner for £62 million in 2016, is looking for new funding for the club after failure to win the Championship play-off against Fulham that would have returned the club to the monied land of the Premier League.

According to another report , Ronaldo became more unhappy after his agent Jorge Mendes met with the club on Wednesday. He was also the face of the "World Cup Russia 2018" edition but in that he obviously wore Portugal's kit.

Further, struggles to pay a £4.2m tax bill owed to HM Revenue & Customs have left fans feeling a bit blue about things.

A number of interested parties have approached the club to discuss purchasing the club outright.

Villa have also announced that there are "no insolvency practitioners or administration advisors working with the club".

A statement read: "When Keith Wyness spoke at our AGM just a few months ago he spoke of a plan being in place in the event that we were not promoted back to the Premier League".

"We can assure our members that as soon as we know what is happening we will share it with you".
