Villa redevelopment latest (16 Feb)

ASTON VILLA director Mark Ansell has today revealed that he is "very hopeful" that the club can announce details of the new Trinity Road stand in the next few days.

Villa officials have been locked in talks with City chiefs over the past few months regarding the project that will increase the capacity at Villa Park to over 50,000.

Three weeks ago the club were refused planning permission by Birmingham City Council but the club's financial-director is now confident that, after modification, the new plans will be accepted.
