Paul Faulkner resigns from Aston Villa

Paul Faulkner has left Aston Villa in his role as chief executive.

At the end of last season owner Randy Lerner put Villa up for sale as the American decided he had spent enough in attempting to raise the club's profile and fortunes.

Several weeks ago the club also sacked assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa following an internal investigation into off-field issues.

Boss Paul Lambert has since appointed Roy Keane as his new assistant, but the loss of Faulkner serves as another blow to the midlands outfit.
