Thierry Henry reaches agreement to become Aston Villa manager

Thierry Henry Aston Villa

According to reports emerging this morning, Thierry Henry has "verbally agreed" to take over at Villa Park, sparking further speculation that Bruce will be on his way out.

Bruce has several faults, but at the end of the day, he gives Aston Villa the best chance to succeed, at least initially.

Villa had later issued a statement that NSWE, a Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens jointly controlled company, would inject a significant investment capital into the club but Chinese owner Tony Xia will become co-chairman and remain on the board.

Villa have reportedly sounded out Thierry Henry over taking their job, and Bruce is set for talks over his future today.

Ahead of the meeting, Bruce was still expected to be in charge for the friendly against West Ham at Walsall tonight.

Steve Bruce is fearing the worst before a meeting with the new Aston Villa owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.

"He was in line for the England job so how can anyone question him?" James Chester and Jack Grealish however are two key players that continue to be linked with transfers to Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

Henry is now 7/2 with Betway to achieve promotion to the Premier League in his first season as Villa manager, and it is 11/1 he wins the league.

"But you tell me a manager who loses his mum and dad and is back on the touchline as if nothing has happened".

Villa lost the Sky Bet Championship play-off final 1-0 to Fulham in May which plunged them into chaos.
