John Richardson has a report today in The Express saying that Villa owner Randy Lerner, who has just sold the Browns for around $1billion, has put the feelers out to sell Villa also. Remember Villa CEO Paul Faulkner the other week (see: Villa NOT Up For Sale) said: 'The Browns situation means absolutely nothing with regard to Aston Villa - neither good nor bad.

The paper report today says Sunday Express Sport has been told by a reliable source that feelers have been put out for potential buyers of the Midlands club.

Paul Lambert has taken the sensible approach to today's 3-1 to Notts Forest, insisting he has taken plenty from the game, but the results are irrelevant.

The return of the pre season cameras will allow subscribers to watch the full 90 minutes of the Werder Bremen clash on August 11. As usual, the screening is only available to AVTV subscribers - so for any season ticketers who haven't yet contacted the club for the code to kick in the service, get onto them sharpish if you still have troubles.

Paul Brown: Ciaran Clark is hoping to be a driving force in Villa's backline this season - alongside 'Rolls-Royce' defender Matt Lowton. Paul Lambert was wowed by Lowton in his first outing against Burton, insisting the right-back didn't break sweat. Article: www.avfc.co.uk
