Lambert in talks over extending his Villa management contract

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has revealed he is in talks with chairman Randy Lerner over extending his stay at Villa Park. "If you have that vision, you need people seeing it and backing it and Randy has been fantastic with that," he told the Express and Star.

"He knows what's happened, and he knows the way we want to go, and as I said, he's backed it and been excellent.

"They see the vision and what's happened, and the work's going on behind the scenes, to have that vision of what you want to do."

Asked if there was any updates on the talks Lambert said: "Nothing really. The most important thing is the game on Saturday.

"I speak to Randy a lot and things like that will take care of itself. There's nothing major in it.

"I've another year after this anyway. I never look too far ahead. The discussions between me and the chairman will be the same as they've always been.

"They see the vision and what's happened, and the work's going on behind the scenes, to have that vision of what you want to do."
