Aston Villa look set to fire chief executive, Tom Fox as part of an overhaul of the Villans board by the recently appointed chairman, Steve Hollis.

John Percy writes for the Telegraph that Fox’s position at Villa has become ‘untenable’ and that the former-Arsenal board member could be set to leave the club before Aston Villa’s doomed season is even finished.

Hollis was appointed on to the board towards the back end of January and has bee quick to assess the issues at the West Midlands side that have dogged them for so many years consecutively.

Hendrik Almstadt and head of recruitment Paddy Riley are also said to be under intense scrutiny for their summer signings at B6.

In the summer, Aston Villa spent in excess of £50-million on players. Most of the recruits have failed to settle in the Villa side leaving them in the lurch and rock bottom of the Premier League.

The blame is said to lie with Tom Fox and his two respective recruits in Reilly and Almstadt.

Villa fans have got fed up in recent weeks with the board and aimed much abuse towards Fox and owner Randy Lerner.

The report states the future of Remi Garde is still unclear and job cuts are expected behind the scenes at B6.
