Aston Villa has confirmed that Chinese businessman Dr Tony Jiantong Xia has bought the club for a reported sum of £60 million.
Dr Xia became a fan of Aston Villa many years ago and is delighted at the opportunity to become the new owner.
Randy Lerner has sought the right new owner for Aston Villa who would take great care of the Club and restore its fortunes. He believes that Tony Xia is an excellent choice.
Dr Xia's immediate objective is to return Aston Villa to the Premier League and then to have the Club finish in the top six, bringing European football back to Villa Park. He plans to make Aston Villa the most famous football Club in China with a huge fan base.
American billionaire Randy Lerner bought Aston Villa in 2006 for £62.2m and put it up for sale in 2014.
The club's new manager will not be announced until the deal is done, though it is likely to be either Nigel Pearson or Roberto di Matteo.
West Bromwich Albion have confirmed the departures of out-of-contract duo Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.
Sessegnon, who is soon to turn 32, made a total of 92 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals, since arriving at The Hawthorns in 2013.
Anichebe, 28, made 63 outings for the Baggies and found the net nine times following his arrival at the club in the same summer window.
The two lads worked really hard for me and were as good as gold. Everybody at the Club wishes them all the best in their future careers.
Meanwhile, the Club remain in discussions with James Morrison regarding a new contract.
