EFL chief exec confident solution can be found to Aston Villa's financial problems
13/06/2018 08:08 pm - EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said he was "certain" a solution is there to fix Aston Villa's financial woes. The club's financial troubles have been well-documented in recent times, prompting a meeting between Harvey and officials at Villa to determine the future direction of the club. Villa failed to reach the Premier League last season which has contributed to their financial problems Unsurprisingly, fans are concerned at the prospect of having to sell important players including Jack Grealish – who has been linked with multiple Premier League clubs. The Villans suspended chief executive Keith Wyness earlier this month before confirming his departure yesterday. It is understood Harvey will request a business plan from the club and will seek reassurances that they can fulfil their financial obligations. And speaking to talkSPORT's Dan Windle and Mark Smith, Harvey said he would seek the "absolute answers" when he meets the club officials.

"I'm certain the solution is there but we need to make sure there is sufficient funding available to get them through the end of the season and I'm sure we'll find that answer."
