Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Tim Sherwood has been appointed new Aston Villa manager.

The 46-year-old has agreed a contract that will see him take charge of the Premier League side until the end of the 2017-18 season.

He succeeds Paul Lambert, who was sacked on Wednesday night, leaving the Midlands club in a relegation battle following their midweek defeat at Hull City.

The Villans have the lowest goal tally ever in the history of the English top flight after 25 round of matches- 12 goals in 25 league games- and are winless in 10 Premier League matches.

Sherwood told the club’s official website: “It is a great honour to manage one of the biggest clubs in English football.

“I can’t wait to get started and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.”

Villa chairman Randy Lerner added: “While being forever conscious of the frustrations that we all suffer, we feel that a change that offers a positive, fresh approach will be very good for the club.

“I know that Tom and many others at Villa worked very hard to recruit Tim in the face of severely limited time constraints and pounding pressure.

“More importantly, I know further that internally we remain focused and committed to challenges we face, and I am deeply appreciative for that.”
