The 22-year-old is valued at £40m with Tottenham, Leicester and West Ham all interested, but who else could be sold amid the financial crisis?

There's a bit of uncertainty around Villa Park after losing to Fulham in the Championship Playoff Final at Wembley and thus missing out on a berth in next season's Premier League.

Aston Villa have suspended CEO Keith Wyness amid suggestions that the HMRC has issued a winding up order against the club, according to Sky News. News of Wyness' suspension will come as a crushing blow to Villa, with the club having narrowly missed out on promotion back to the riches of the Premier League.

The club have been desperately searching for options amid owner Tony Xia's inability to extract money from China to cover the monthly deficit of between £5m-£6m.

Villa have already let former and England and Chelsea captain John Terry and striker Gabby Agbonlahor go this summer and have said they will not be able to sign any of the five loan players they had last season on permanent deals.

Saudi Arabia grants first driving licences to women
This measure is part of the traffic department's preparations to implement a royal decree allowing women to drive in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia began issuing its first driving licences to women in decades on Monday, state media reported.

The Chinese businessman is struggling with short-term cash flow, due to strict rules on finances in the Far East, but the move is set to remove the immediate prospect of administration as the club battle to find a solution.

Part of the cash flow issues the club are facing are due to the fact that Villa are not now earning any matchday revenue in the close season, despite already selling 17,000 season tickets.

The Aston Villa Supporters' Trust has also called on the club to give fans an update on the situation.

"We can assure our members that as soon as we know what is happening we will share it with you".
