According to the Daily Mail, in an article with no quotes or any meat on the bone, suggests that Martin O'Neill is set to take a massive gamble and come 'riding to the rescue of crisis club Aston Villa'.
The Mail claim he has had talks with intermediaries and has agreed to meet Doug Ellis who returns from holiday tomorrow (which is good of him judging by the fact the club tumbled even further into crisis last week!).
O'Neill has said he is ready to get back into the game but I am sure more than a few people might be surprised to hear that he is willing to talk with Doug Ellis again, maybe he is banking on the fact that Doug can't go on forever (I have my suspicions about that though, is Doug Ellis immortal?) and that he will be securely in the Villa hot seat when one of these blinking consortiums finally take the Villa out of the grasp of the Menace of B6!
The majority of fans in the phone in's, forums and polls have backed Martin O'Neill as the only man for the job.
There have been suggestions that O'Neill wouldn't come whilst Doug was still in charge and that he would in-fact wait for a consortium to succeed before taking on the managers role. He has been closely linked with the Michael Neville consortium although I'm sure that group isn't alone in knowing O'Neill would be a perfect choice!
