Aston Villa boss O’Neill assures fans he wants stay

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has told fans he isn't actively seeking to leave Villa Park.

Both chairman Randy Lerner and chief executive Paul Faulkner missed the club's awards night this week.

In the end, it was left to a disgruntled supporter to ask the $64,000 question from the floor after the Irishman had taken the microphone.

"Are you staying Martin, or not?" boomed a Brummie voice.

"All I can say is that Randy Lerner has no need to ring Mark Hughes," came the reply.
