Lambert in the dark over Villa future

Victory over Hull may have all but assured Aston Villa safety from relegation, but manager Paul Lambert remains in the dark about owner Randy Lerner's intentions for the club.

Speculation that Lerner will look to sell the club this summer has been growing since he released a vague statement last month which indicated only that he would clarify his own position at the end of the season.

You're asking me a question I can't give an answer to and that's me being honest.

The chairman will come out and say what he's going to say and I really don't know what he will say. His statement is what it is. I understand what has gone on in the last few weeks and I'm pretty sure people will find out soon.
