Aston Villa set for more chaos after latest reveal

Aston Villa are set for a legal battle with Chief Executive Keith Wyness who is suing the club for constructive dismissal.

That’s according to the Telegraph who say even though he was only initially suspended by the club, Wyness has now left the club and he is no longer a member of the board.

Given the fallout since his suspension last week, it will come as little surprise that he has left his role but the 60-year old wants to take Villa to court in a case that could cost the cash-strapped club around £6m.

Additionally, the report claims chief commercial offer Luke Organ and executive assistant Rongtian He could face legal action although the reasons why are not specified.

Wyness joined Villa back in 2016 when owner Tony Xia bought the club and was a key figure at the club with Xia often back in China.

However, the pair fell out after the play-off final defeat against Fulham when details emerged of Villa’s terrible financial situation.

The Verdict

This is more bad news for Villa who will not want this hanging over them given all the other serious issues they currently have.

Whether Wyness has a case remains to be seen but it’s out there now and it will create more questions and uncertainty for a club that has enough to deal with.

For Villa and Xia, the immediate task will be securing the future of the club but the issue with Wyness appears as though it will drag on for a while yet.
