Villa owners make huge cash injection
Aston Villa’s generous owners are continuing to show their commitment to the club, with the injection of a further £57million into the club via a share issue.
A filing on Companies House shows that 57,000,000 shares have been allotted by the club’s parent company, the newly-named NSWE UK Limited, at £1 each.
100% of the value of the shares has been paid at the time of issue, with a value of exactly £57million.
Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens – Villa’s billionaire owners – have now injected well over £250million via share issues since they took control of the club from Tony Xia last year.

Villa urged to consider Celtic striker
That’s the view of former Rangers and Scotland forward Kris Boyd, who thinks a number of Premier League teams will be looking at Edouard with interest.
He’s rattled in 43 goals in just 98 appearances since joining the Scottish Premiership champions from PSG, initially on a loan deal which became permanent last summer.
Randy Lerner, $125 million worth of trees and Alec Baldwin
Randy Lerner is the subject of a legal wrangle over the deforestation on a piece of land that cannot be developed on, with actor Alec Baldwin reporting Lerner to authorities.
It could cost him a massive $125 million, according to reports in the United States by 27 East.com , a website serving the wealthy area of the Hamptons.
The former Aston Villa owner , who owns the MBNA bank, bought a six-acre stretch of land in Long Island, known as 341 Town Lane in the small village of Amagansett and two days later started to cut down trees.
Lerner reportedly paid $12.5m for the land (£10.2m), which the Peconic Land Trust obtained a temporary restraining order on last month to prevent more trees being felled.
