Alex McLeish is in the money at Aston Villa.
The Sun says McLeish will pocket a 150 PER CENT pay rise.
The Scot agreed a three-year deal worth £2million a year.
McLeish's contract at Birmingham would have seen his wages HALVED to £800,000 a year after the club were relegated from the Premier League.
McLeish, 52, who quit Brum last Sunday, insists he will silence the Villa boo-boys after crossing the Second City.
Big Eck said: "I know some of our fans have voiced concerns and I can understand why. It will be up to me to convince you that I am the right man to drive the club forward."
