Garde facing the axe

Remi Garde looks to be heading for the exit door less than six months after taking charge of Aston Villa.

Garde was tasked with improving the club's fortunes when he was appointed as Tim Sherwood's successor in November but just three wins in 23 games has left Villa on the brink of relegation from the Premier League.

Saturday's 1-0 defeat to Swansea was their 21st loss of the season and they find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table, 12 points from safety with just seven games remaining.

Chief executive Tom Fox and sporting director Hendrik Almstadt both left the club last week and there is growing speculation that chairman Steve Hollis will axe Garde in the coming days.

Garde met with new board member David Bernstein on Wednesday to discuss his future and, while talks went well, it is likely that he will be shown the door less than six months into his three-and-a-half-year deal with Nigel Pearson the front-runner to take over at Villa Park in the summer.
