Aston Villa are set to save Danish outfit Lyngby Boldklub from going bust. The Danish club are currently in financial crisis and Villa are set to hand them a lifeline.
Lyngby Boldklub are currently 12th in the Danish Superliga and are in the middle of a financial crisis that would see them go into administration if investment is not found quickly. The club has reportedly asked its players if they can wait for salary payments as the investment from an English club is imminent.
It has been reported that many English teams have been interested in saving the Danish club with Brighton & Hove Albion being reported as front runners to invest but they have since ended their interest.
Danish newspaper BT have reported that a massive English club are set to Save Lyngby and it is believed that Aston Villa are that club.
If Villa do invest in Lyngby, it would most likely be used as a feeder club with Villa getting first dibs on talented players whilst also having the opportunity to loan players to the Danish club.
Aston Villa’s chief executive Keith Wyness has previously talked about the clubs plans to invest abroad, saying:
The strengthening of the Aston Villa brand abroad is very much on the agenda. It’s something I keep a close eye on. I have had several discussions with some groups overseas. It could be any time soon that we dabble into those markets. It’s not Premier League dependent. We already have contacts and advanced negotiations on a number of areas but nothing absolutely concrete just yet.
