Thierry Henry 'Agrees' To Become New Aston Villa Manager (Details)

Thierry Henry has reportedly agreed a deal with Aston Villa to become their new manager.

Henry was Roberto Martinez's assistant as Belgium reached the semi-final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Frenchman recently quit his job as a Sky Sports pundit in order to pursue a career in management.

And According to Daily Star, Henry has 'Verbally Agreed' to become the new boss at Aston Villa.

Steve Bruce remains the coach of Villa for now but the report also claim that the new majority shareholder Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are unsure if he can lead the Villans back to the Premier League.

The Championship club missed out on promotion to the top flight last term after defeat to Fulham in the playoffs.

Villa are keen to go down the same routeas another Midlands club, Derby, in appointing an unproven former Premier League star after Frank Lampard was announced as their new manager earlier this summer.

But Daily Star adds that Henry wants assurance over transfer budget and his salary before taking the new role.

Following his departure from Sky Sports, Henry said: "Over the last four years I have had some extremely rewarding coaching experiences in football.

“These experiences have only made me more determined to fulfil my long-term ambition to become a football manager.

"It is with sadness, therefore, that I have decided that I must leave Sky Sports to enable me to spend more time on the pitch and concentrate on my journey to achieving that goal.

"I would like to thank everyone at Sky for making me feel so welcome and at ease throughout my time with them and I wish them all the best for the future. Great memories.”
