Di Matteo close to Villa appointment


Roberto Di Matteo could be confirmed as the new manager of Aston Villa before the end of the week.

Di Matteo has been out of work since leaving Schalke last summer, but the former Chelsea and West Brom manager is closing in on a deal that would see him take over at Villa Park.

The club's new owner Tony Xia identified the Italian as the ideal candidate to guide the club back to the Premier League and it is hoped he will be in place in the coming days to begin planning for life in the SkyBet Championship.

Villa were relegated from the top flight for the first time since 1987 after managing just three league victories over the course of a disappointing season.

Shortly after the club's relegation was confirmed, Xia was announced as the new owner after agreeing a £60million deal with Randy Lerner, but the takeover is subject passing the Football League's Owners and Director's Test.
