Villa chairman Lerner will back O'Neill in summer market

Aston Villa chairman Randy Lerner says manager Martin O'Neill will be backed in the summer market.

"Martin's achievements have been superb," said Lerner. "We have improved steadily and we have qualified for Europe two seasons in a row.

"He has bought into our club, he has emotionally invested. That's how he's wired.

"He has a reputation as a very good manager, with good success, and that will play a part when new players are thinking of coming to Aston Villa.

"The funds will be in place for him."
